Kate DiCamillo, a writer of children's books says 'Reading should not be presented to children as a chore, a duty. It should be offered as a gift.' This is the approach to reading that I take and that I try to instill in everyone I work with. At the end of a busy day, you will always find me with a book in my hand – books really are portable magic.
