The children’s delight in the books was confirmed in the feedback. So too was the pleasure of shared family reading and the idea of the book as a gift from parent to child.
The Give a Book bags were also a great success. In addition to the book, they contained a notebook and pencils, and a Phoenix comic generously donated by the publishers.
‘I love my book. I read it with my daddy. It looks really fun’
‘I loved reading with my boy’
‘We can’t usually give our children presents so it’s nice they get something to take home’
‘One girl who was plainly delighted with the book and the bag told us how she would be able to take the bag to the library and carry home her books in it’
