It’s hard to get children to borrow non-fiction books unless you make a bit of an effort. Lots of them would rather copy and paste from the internet for their homework and it doesn’t help if they’re confronted with shelves of thin spines in some strange Dewey Decimal order. At Langley we try and use colourful pictures and posters on the walls and change our displays at least monthly to show off the gorgeous books. This month we’ve picked out all the rainforest books and used the Teaching Ideas web site for a wall display (a few months ago we used their dinosaur materials which are fantastic, especially the dinosaur alphabet!).
