Summer reading

Co-ordinator of the Reading Bus literacy project, which tours Aberdeen schools

I'd like to offer the top ten books on the Reading Bus, as recommended by the Sunnybank Primary's broadcast group:

* Snore! by Michael Rosen and Jonathan Langley chosen because of the beautiful pictures and their love of dogs

* Where's Wally? by Martin Handford used in every session by different pupils

* Wrestlemania 2007, a Pedigree annual. Particularly popular with boys, who justify their choice by saying: "I like fighting."

* Football Flip Quiz, Bradford Press. "I like football and it's a fun quiz to play with your friends," said one pupil.

* The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. "I like this book because it is imaginative, has adventures and because it is very funny to read," said another.

* I Love Animals Annual 2007, Buster Books, "because I love animals and the book has a lot of information about them".

* The Incredible Book-Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers, because it is very funny.

* I Will Not Ever Never Eat a Tomato by Lauren Child. "I love this book because I watch Charlie and Lola on TV and the print is easy to read."

* Guinness Book of Records 2007. "I love looking at the gruesome pictures and reading about the amazing things people do."
