Nathan Cahill has written a special song for this occassion - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cFnuBB7GAyQ&feature=youtu.be

 

Please watch the video and share this with your patrons / pupils. As you can see from the comments from students and teachers, a great way to promote books and reading:
What the students say:

"Can we sing it again?"

"I love the beat!"

"Can we do this for assembly?"

What the teachers say:

"Sounds amazingly wonderful"

"What a great song!! And what great resources!!"
