Earlier today, TV presenters Richard Madeley and Judy Finnegan announced the launch of their Children's Book Club. The pair have been transformed into cartoon characters for the launch, exclusively with WHSmith.
The Children's Book Club is made up of three separate categories with six titles in each. The categories are: Reading Together, Reading By Yourself and Fluent Reader. Their concern is to help parents choose great books for their children, which the children will love. Additional enthusiasm, support and advice is being lent to the Children's Book Club by Booktrust, who have also given reviews for all 8 titles. Sounds like a winner!
