We would suggest that the children continue to read everyday, we have attached below a link where a wide range of school aged books can be accessed free online - this can be especially helpful if you don't have access to a wide range of books at home. Feel free to write a review of a book once you have read it, this can be shared with your class teacher. Also remember that you can log onto the Accelerated Reader website to check the 'level' of the book to ensure it is a book of appropriate challenge and content.
