Virtual School Reviews

Jill Crosbie, Acting Head of Virtual School, writes:
As part of our exciting ongoing partnership work with the impressive new Library of Birmingham, students connected to the Virtual School were invited to write short reviews of their favourite books. Many of them enthusiastically took this opportunity and will be receiving generously donated book tokens for their efforts.
The reviews they have written will be posted here on the Library of Birmingham website and the book covers of their recommendations will be on display on the digital screen in the Children's Library. I hope that you enjoy finding out what their favourite books are and why and to share our pride in the effort these students have put into this activity.
