In the next three days I’ll be visiting eight schools and talking to hundreds, maybe thousands, of children about why books and reading are awesome. I did the same thing last year and had a great time. It’s all organized by ‘Duffy Books in Homes’ a not-for-profit that gives books to children in low income schools. I’m one of Duffy’s ‘heroes’ which is one of the best job titles I’ve ever had!
Anyway, I’m working on my pitch and need your help. If you had the chance to talk to all these kids about books and reading, what would you tell them?
