Nicole's visit to our classroom has made us more enthusiastic and excited to read than ever before - a lot of us have now read something we would never have chosen before.
Nicole gave us great ideas for how to choose books. We set up a mystery book box and it created a real buzz when people unwrapped a surprise title.
