Our Special Books

Wednesday 13 January 2021

L.O. Books - what are they good for?

Think about these questions:


When were books invented?

Who are they for?

Do you prefer ebooks (Kindle) or actual books?

Is a Kindle a book?

What makes a book a book?

What are the advantages of ebooks?

What would the world be like without books?


Listen to me talking about books below.



Now answer these questions:


Which book would you most like to own and why?

Which kind of books are most helpful to you and why?

Which kind of book would you give a friend or family member and why?

Why should you treat books with care?

If you wrote a book, what kind would it be and why?

How would you feel if you had a book of your own printed?

Learning Task


Tell me about a book that is very special to you. 

What is it and who wrote it?

Why is it special to you?

Give a quick review of the book - without giving away too much about the plot and the ending.

If you can take a photo of you with the book that would be great - then we can make a gallery of us all with our special books.
