On the 5th March it is World Book Day. This day is all about reading books so I am going to share with you 5 reasons to read a book.
It transports you to a new world
When you read a book you imagine lots of things and sometimes you imagine a completely new world.
My example: His Dark Materials (by Philip Pullman).
It can help you with spelling and vocabulary
Often whe you read a book you come across words you have never seen before. This is a great way of learning new words and how to spell them.
My Example: “edged”, meaning slowly creeping towards something (in Snow Foal by Suzanna Bailey)
It’s a really fun way to learn about different facts
You can find out about many new things, especially in non fiction books.
My example: Your chimp is like another version of you that can take control if you get angry. (My Hidden Chimp by Prof. Steve Peters)
It’s a great way to relax
If you are feeling a bit tired reading a book is a great thing to do because you don’t need alot of energy to do it. It’s also much better for you than looking at a screen.
My example: I like to read a book before I go to sleep.
It can inspire you to do new things
If you read something in a book it can inspire you to do something in real life.
My example: I got inspired to do more running and exploring when I read Fantastic Femail Adventures (by Lily Dyu).
