National Literacy Strategy

Yesterday I mentioned Hannah's choice of Captain Underpants when give a choice of titles. I'd also mentioned that she'd read the first four chapters in a short period of time.

This morning, as I woke up, she announced she'd finished the book.

I think that the Captain Underpants series should be compulsory reading for all Year 1/Year 2/Year 3/Year 4 students. It is intended for ages 9-12 but frankly I think all ages will enjoy the lavatorial humour.

The author's website is worth a visit if you fancy a juvenile break and some interesting stuff about how a book is born. And his latest title is Captain Underpants and the Preposterous Plight of the Purple Potty People, in case you wondered.

And his work is quite amazing if you consider he suffered from reading disabilities as a child and spent much of the school day sat at his own "private desk" in the corridor.
