It’s exciting to know that well over 10 million words have been read over the time of the Reading Challenge. The real reward for reading is, of course, the reading itself. We read for the enjoyment, the knowledge, the learning that takes place while we read. The other good thing is the encouragement of reading as an everyday habit for all of us. Like eating vegetables, reading is
actually good for you!
Many thanks to all those who participated. The winning class will enjoy a pizza and a movie together.
