Nobody could be more delighted that reading for pleasure is attaining the sort of importance, that I have always believed and that research has resoundingly demonstrated, that it deserves.  This webinar will touch briefly on that research but will mainly focus on the role of the librarian/ teacher/adult.The title of this course should be at the heart of what we try to do and I will set out some useful tips on how to make sure you are equipped to grab that moment and light that spark and make a real difference to a child's life chances.

This webinar is free for SLA members, just sign in, add it to your cart and then it should show as free.
