Children’s Laureate, Cressida Cowell, has launched her flagship Life-changing Libraries project to showcase the power of library spaces in primary schools. Over the next year, six very different primary schools across England – all of which have at least 25% of pupils eligible for free school meals – will be helped to develop a reading for pleasure culture. Each of the six schools taking part will receive a bespoke library space, stocked with a specially curated booklist of approximately 1,000 titles chosen by BookTrust’s expert team, with guidance from the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education. Our ‘Elise and the Second-hand Dog’ was one of the books selected and we are proud to be a small part of this project.
