Introduction to Reading Pathway Collectionswww.readersthatcare.co.uk Twitter:@melissacreate Email: readersthatcare@gmail.comFor information about Reading Pathway collections and why I think they can make a real difference to encouraging reading for pleasure in years 1 to 3. Please see: http://www.readersthatcare.co.uk/readingpathways/ Personalised Collections You can add books to the core set of authors and illustrators to personalise the collection to the needs of your school and/or a particular cohort or class. Want to know more? Like the idea of the Reading Pathway collections, want to know more about the books and advise on where best to start? Please get in touch. Join my £40 a term club, and arrange a ‘talk through a collection’ online session With unique insights into some of the books, and a chance to explore what would work best in your school.

Adding Chapter BooksWhen I first came up with the idea of Reading Pathway Collections I was really interested in displays that included both picture books and chapter books. But, then I decided I wanted to: a) Keep the core collections as small as possible to make it an affordable idea for everyone. b) That I didn’t want to distract from everyone enjoying picture books. These have so much to offer children of all ages. c) Many schools would already have chapter books they could link in with the displays. I am most happy to make recommendations of chapter book stories that would link in with the Reading Pathway mini themes. For children in year 3 especially it would be great if themed displays included both picture books and chapter books.www.readersthatcare.co.uk Twitter:@melissacreate
