It is possible to get children to discuss why they liked or did not like particular books and to encourage them to think more deeply about the books they’ve read. This free course, Encouraging book talk in the school library, offers ideas and activities to engage pupils in discussing books. It is aimed at librarians, teaching assistants and other adults working with pupils in school libraries.
