(Not So) Wild Reading

Wild Reading, reading outdoors in exciting and interesting places, has been a regular feature of Spotlight on Reading across the past 5 years. Unfortunately, with current Covid-19 restrictions, time outside is limited to once a day for exercise.  We are not going to let that scupper our plans though, instead we would like you to send in creative and imaginative pictures of you reading at home.  This could be reading in an interesting or unusual place, reading dressed as a character in the book or reading to your family or toys.  Let your imagination run wild! Please send your photos to marked 'Wild Reading'.
