A Little, Aloud for Children

by Angela Macmillan (Editor), with a foreword by Michael Morpurgo
£9.99   paperback  Random House Children (2012)

A Little, Aloud for Children by Angela Macmillan (Editor), with a foreword by Michael Morpurgo Research shows that the seemingly simple act of being read to brings remarkable health and happiness benefits. It stimulates thought and memory, encourages the sharing of ideas and feelings, hopes and fears. It enriches our lives and minds.
 
This unique book offers a selection of prose and poetry especially suitable for reading aloud to children. It includes extracts ranging from modern day favourites (David Almond, Frank Cottrell Boyce, Neil Gaiman) to old classics (Kipling, Dickens, E. Nesbit), and features a foreword from Michael Morpurgo. Each piece has been chosen by the Reader Organisation, whose team has unique experience in the effect and benefits of books that immediately capture children's interest and imagination.
 
All royalties in full will go to The Reader Organisation, the leading UK charity for reading and health.
