My favourite book is The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
This was the first book that I read and enjoyed at primary school. The whole school were going to the cinema to see the film when it was released and my mum said I could not go if I didn’t finish the book. I was so upset and couldn’t understand why not.
Until I read the book!..... It drew me into an amazing fantasy garden full of beautiful things and wonderful adventures. I imagined everything about the characters and imagined myself in the garden with them. Luckily I finished the book so could go to the cinema with my class. However, I much preferred the book and the story that I had imagined!

My favourite book is The Magic Faraway Tree
I love reading because getting lost in a book provides and escape from everyday life. It helps me relax and I enjoy experiencing life through another lens. It is one of my favourite pastimes.

One of my favourite stories growing up was Roald Dahl's The BFG I first remember it being read to me in assembly at primary school, I was absolutely fascinated by the magical story within the first chapter. I remember for a couple of months after reading the book wishing that a Big Friendly Giant would visit me in the middle of the night and scoop me up!

My favourite childhood books were the Rainbow Magic Fairy collection books. I have fond memories reading them with my mum and sister and I enjoyed collecting them when I got pocket money.
The stories were always so exciting and action packed, and I loved learning about each fairy and what her powers were!
