Words of Wisdom from our Youngest Readers

The new Read Write Inc. Book Bag Books are aimed at children between the ages of four and seven years old. As with all our products, our readers are both our biggest fans and our toughest critics, so before any book gets published it gets sent for rigorous trialling. Find out what pupils had to say about their first glimpse of Book Bag Books

First up, Fright Night. Did Jess Flight get her dream of being the wicked witch in the school play? Ince C.E and Cyril Jackson pupils found out and told us what they thought…

Age 5 | Ince C.E Primary

Was this book interesting? Which part did you like best?

That the witch had a black cat like I have.

Did you like the pictures? Please tell us why/why not?

She thought the little girl witch has whiskers on her cheeks.

 

Age 6 |Cyril Jackson School

Did you enjoy this book? Why/Why not?

Yes. I liked the part when the teacher got scared.

What could we do to make this book better?

Instead of “EEK!” the teacher could say, “You made me jump!”.

Good Hair, Bad Hair tells us all about different kinds of hair, and one pupil told us what he thought while giving us some tips and ideas of his own:

Age 5 | Ince C.E Primary

Did you like the pictures? Please tell us why/why not.

I like all the hair pictures. I would have spiky hair. I sit still at the hairdressers.

What could we do to make this book better?

Colour the girl’s hair like candy floss. It has to be pink because I’ve had pink candy floss.

This pupil loved the perfect mouse-sized house the mice lived in when she read A House Fit for a Mouse: 

Age 5 | Ince C.E Primary

Was this book interesting? Which part did you like best?

Yes, I liked this bit, “A House Fit for a Mouse” (laughed out loud)

If I was a mouse, I would buy this house!

Another pupil had lots to say about what went on with the naughty cat and the fish in Bad Cat and she had some great tips for us in This is Not my Pizza!

Age 5 | Ince C.E Primary

Bad Cat

The cat looks like he has a big, white beard like Father Christmas.

What did you like most about this book?

Where the fish gets the naughty cat back!

This is Not my Pizza

What could we do to make this book better?

I would put ham on the pizza  and I think you should say ‘yack’ as well as ‘yuck’.

Meanwhile, this pupil took a very grown-up approach to Robin Hood’s character in A Big Bag of Cash:

Ince C.E Primary

What did you like most about this book?

That Robin Hood was donating to charity

What could we do to make this book better?

Maybe we could make Robin Hood ask the rich for money first.

And finally, this pupil loved to learn about the important job a vet does in our society in A Vet’s Week:

Age 5| Ince C.E Primary

I liked the story map at the back. I could talk about it with my mum and dad.
