Reading to your class: we’ve got it covered!

Nikki Gamble says, ' Reading aloud is a pleasurable, shared experience which brings the class together as a community of readers. It is through listening to stories read aloud expressively that children first encounter and begin to acquire the rich vocabulary that is essential for comprehension, and they also develop an implicit knowledge of language that they will learn to use to effect in their writing. The books in our hand picked selection have been chosen for the read aloud qualities by our team of consultants and teacher reviewers.'

The Imagination Box: story starter by Martyn Ford

There is a box. Anything you imagine will appear inside. You have one go, one chance to create anything you want. What would you pick? That's exactly the question ten-year-old Timothy Hart gets to answer after discovering The Imagination Box. The greatest toy on earth. The top-secret contraption transforms his life but when the box's inventor, Professor Eisenstone, goes missing, Tim knows he has to investigate. With the help of a talking finger monkey called Phil, he sets out to find the professor. In order to rescue his friend, he must face his darkest fears and discover the true potential of his own mind.
I came up with the idea for The Imagination Box – a device which creates whatever the user is imagining – when I was myself a child. Probably, I suspect, it was as a result of wanting something and being told “no” by one or both of my parents. Over the years the concept slipped out of my mind, but returned when I saw a documentary about nanotechnology and, all of a sudden, the gadget didn’t seem so far fetched. I started writing the novel soon after.
