Word Magic

There is something magical about being so engrossed in a book, you just can’t put it down, whether at night in bed, on the train, or as in the case of Jenny, the transfer from childminder to home front door to armchair. She didn’t even take her coat off.


Just in case you want to know, the book is Cool by Michael Morpurgo and she finished it in one school day, (which I assume included some other learning in addition to reading).

    I used to be like that. I would not put the book down. I would be like it still if it wasn’t for those pesky kids!

      My two are not little ‘uns anymore so I get a bit more of a break, but rarely a completely uninterrupted read.

    This happens to me sometimes too! I think it’s brilliant a book can still capture imagination, especially with so many games/dvds etc around these days!

      I mostly tend to fall asleep after half a page when I do get to sit with a book!
