    My daughter (Y2) and I recently read together (she would read a page or two and then I would read the rest of the chapter to her) a few stories we both really enjoyed, to the point she was actually looking forward to bedtime! (I know, right?) One of them was The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C S Lewis and then Ronia, the Robber’s daughter and Brothers Lionheart bot hby Astrid Lindgren (author of Pippi Longstocking). My daughter loved Brothers Lionheart so much that she decided to get the book as a birthday present for her friend. It’s a great story about the bond between two brothers in difficult times, quite dark actually, but touches on the taboo of death and loss of a loved one, which is often avoided in children’s books, but here it is presented beautifully, giving the reader a chance to think about it and form their own opinion of it. Cannot recommend it enough and would love to see it on the shelves of the school’s library.
