National read a new book month

September 1, 2017 - September 30, 2017


“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”
~ Mark Twain
Throughout history, there has been one thing that stands forth as one of the greatest drivers of societies advancement. That thing is the book. ‘Read A New Book Month’ celebrates these amazing documents and the stories they share, and encourages you to read a new book!
Every year thousands of new titles get published, creating a never-ending supply of new worlds to visit and new things to learn. While we often think of books as being the traditional board or paper covered groupings of pages sewn together, the first books weren’t books at all. They were tablets and scrolls embossed or written with the knowledge of the age in which they were created.
Writing in book doesn’t always go left to right, different languages often compose their writing in different directions. Writing can go left to right, right to left, top to bottom, and some forms even alternate their writing from left to right and right to left!
We will be celebrating ‘Read A New Book Month’ by encouraging the children to bring in a book from home so we can read a new book to the children each day. We will also be looking at different types of books and writing styles from other countries as well as the different types of writing through history.
Throughout September we will also be celebrating the events detailed below to coincide with ‘Read a New Book Month’.
