Text Innovation: Encourage your child to change the story to include themselves. Include phrases like ‘My name is (your child’s name) and this book is about….’. Have fun with thinking about what characters could make your book ‘The Wrong Book’. Do this activity orally or create your own book using spare paper.


Have a lovely weekend and happy learning!!
