What would you rescue if your school was on fire and why?

The Wish Factory, a picture book by Chris Riddell (Walker pound;4.99), holds "countless possibilities" for Pat Brudenell, a drama therapist who works with primary pupils in Buckinghamshire.

"It's a wonderful story, imaginatively illustrated, about a young boy, Oliver, who has bad dreams about a monster. One night, instead of the dream, a cloud arrive and takes Oliver to the Wish Factory, to make him a very special wish. It's an excellent resource for reassuring young children about their fears at bedtime, and for exploring their own ideas about wishes."

What would you rescue if the school was on fire, and why? We pay pound;40 for each recommendation published. Send yours to Love It, TES Friday, Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1W 1BX
