The Greatest Library

Question time!

Why do you think the little girl enjoys being in this library so much?

What book do you think she is reading?

Can you tell anything about a person by the types of books they read?

If you could write a book, what would it be about?

Which type of books would you like/not like to come alive?

If you were to take out every single book from a library would it still be a library?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw a picture of your favourite book coming alive? Think about whether it would be friendly or nasty! Will it behave like one of the main characters perhaps?
