In Year 1, we read every day. We love to listen to new fiction and we especially enjoy picture books with colourful illustrations and stories which we can all join in with. Here we are in the library exploring some new fiction.
When we have read a story, we often discuss our own opinions about the book. Sometimes we give the books a star rating, or talk about who we think would enjoy the book. Some of our current favourite picture books have been written by very popular authors such as Oliver Jeffers and Julia Donaldson. However, we also enjoy reading books by authors we haven’t discovered before.
Do you have a favourite picture book author? Are there any picture books that you particularly love? Mrs Farman’s all time favourite is Angelo, by David Macaulay. Our current favourite class read is Extra Yarn, by Mac Barnett.
