Michael Rosen on the telly
I’ve been watching Michael Rosen’s documentary ‘Just Read’ on BBC iplayer. It’s really worth a look – hugely uplifting and just made me want to spend hours sitting on a library floor somewhere exploring the children’s section.
Here are the details:
Children’s laureate and poet Michael Rosen, worried that children don’t seem to read as much as they used to, takes on an ordinary primary school in Cardiff to see if he can start a reading revolution in just ten weeks.
He gives the staff permission to break into a packed curriculum simply to introduce good books and stories, after discovering that a lot of the children don’t have many books at home and have never visited a library.
