    That's exactly how I imagine my class would be so that's a really good idea of what to say to them.

    I am quite expressive reading the stories, I do voices, go quiet, loud etc. because when I think back to school, it was story times like that, that I really remember enjoying. I think what you've all said is true, as long as I pick an interesting book and as long as I don't just read it in a plain boring voice, they should enjoy it so I'm going to give it a go.

    Minnieminx... there are a couple of HA children that when it comes to reading who do their guided reading up in Year 3 and they have them but they're the only ones I've seen with non-picture books.

    Thanks again for all the replies, I've just ordered The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark and The Twits.
