As part of the pre course reading/tasks I was sent as preparation for my Primary PGCE in September, I was given a list of childrens authors from which I should read at least 5 books (not per author - just overall, to build up a library). I live in a rural county, and our local libraries are only open 8.30 - 5.30pm weeekdays. I work in a totally different county an hour's drive from home, and as such am out of the house from 6.30am to 6.30pm. Therefore, as I will have to buy as opposed to borrow these, does anyone have any recommendations, to avoid wasting money? I'd quite like to start building up a collection to cover KS1 & 2 fairly equally, if possible.
