The Book of Hopes

Mrs Moir and her family have very kindly offered to read from the new Book of Hopes.  This book is a collection of short stories, poems, essays and pictures written by more than 110 children’s writers and illustrators, including Lauren Child, Anthony Horowitz, Greg James and Chris Smith, Michael Morpurgo, Liz Pichon, Axel Scheffler, Francesca Simon and Jacqueline Wilson.   The book has been written especially for this time and it is available as a free ebook from the Literacy Trust, so you can read along as well if you wish.  More videos will be added shortly, so keep checking back - or why not look at the book and send in which page you would like to be read next.
