liverpool readathon 2018!

These two weeks, Liverpool readers have been abuzz with the Liverpool Readathon!! I'm a patron of Read For Good, a charity that runs sponsored Readathons in schools to get books and storytellers to kids in hospital. The whole idea of kids helping kids really motivates kids to read, which is great! And it's reading for pleasure, so they can read whatever they like, which is the best way to create readers for life.

Here's our team outside gorgeous Liverpool Central Library: me, Annie Smith from Read For Good, and Jenny Holder from Liverpool Learning Partnership, whose partnership made the whole thing possible! And it's not over! This FRIDAY at 2pm, people across Liverpool are going to Drop Everything And Read!

Liverpool pride themselves on being a City of Readers, and there's nothing more powerful for kids to see than grownups reading, too.
