"The book that made me fall in love with books... "The Enchanted wood" by Enid Blyton I was gripped from the moment my mum began to read it to my brother and I and I'm now enjoying reading it to my own two for the first time. I love watching their faces as they hear about the adventures of all the different characters and I truly hope that it sparks a great love for books in them too" - Elaine Parry
