Patron of Reading update

The fabulous Reading Zone blogged about it here.

Several more schools and authors such as Saviour Pirotta have come forward saying they’d like to participate in the patron of reading scheme.

The Society of Authors , among many others, tweeted about it.

From little acorns do mighty oaks grow….
