We’ve created this page to inspire you to read loads over the Summer! We hope you’ll find new stories to love and new ways of reading to enjoy!

For each week of the Summer Holiday, we will share with you a story we think you will love and some activities you could have a go at to step even further into the story!

We will also share a Staycation Reading Idea of the week for you to have a go at! Please send us your photos when you try them out – we can’t wait to see them!

Here is Miss Hughes reading the story.

This week, try making a cosy den to read your favourite books in.

We’d love to see photos of your creations.

How about making some puppets of the girl, the animals and the humans.

Try retelling the story; what skills would you teach the girl?

 How would the animals and the humans speak to the ’wild’ girl?
