‘Reader development is about making connections between readers, opening up new reading horizons, taking reading off the page, out of the library and into the lives of readers. It is a new buzzword for an old idea — enthusing people about reading and opening up opportunities to talk about what they read.’ So writes author Eileen Armstrong. This super-sized Guideline provides a wealth of ideas for school librarians wishing to take books and reading out into the school. Eileen outlines the curriculum context and then cleverly relates the concept of reader development to a ‘reading restaurant’. There are a number of invaluable appendices including Library Make Over Ideas, Raising the Profile of Reading, Reading Group Activities and Trigger Questions for Book Talking, and a Reading Year. As a real bonus it also includes a foreword and a poignant original short story by Michael Morpurgo, Children’s Laureate.
