Have you noticed the KidderLit widget down the right side of this Blog? It gives the first line (sentence actually) from a number of children's books.
It is interesting to see the many ways that different authors start their books! Here is the first line of the book that I'm reading at the moment:
One of my first memories is of learning to read. ('The Book Whisperer', by Donalyn Miller 2009)
To enter the competition, post a comment below, and tell us the first line of the book YOU are reading now (for pleasure - not a classroom reader), along with the Title and Author of the book (don't forget to sign the post with your first name, too, so we know who is entering the competition).
We will hold a lucky draw of all the comments posted by Springston School students.
The first four comments drawn will win a prize!
The deadline for comments to enter this competition is 9:00 pm on Thursday night. Amended deadline - now 9:00 am Wednesday morning 23 June.
