Why MG?

Kids books.

I’m an adult. I read kids books. Does that surprise you? It shouldn’t. Kids books are excellent.

Creating a culture of readers starts from me. As a teacher, a reader and a trusted human at school it’s SO IMPORTANT for the kids to see me as a role model, reading these amazing books we have.

But why do I choose to read MG books? Cause I do. 100% CHOOSE to read them. I don’t read them because I have to.

MG books are fast paced. They have the most amazing characters. They are brilliantly illustrated. They don’t shy away from tough topics. They teach me things I didn’t know (without patronising me). Their plots are wonderful.

I could keep going… I am a massive advocate for MG books. I’ve convinced a few of my pals who read YA books to read MG books and they’re loving them!

I asked on twitter why others read MG books and I had responses from bloggers, authors and teachers!

Now over to you!
