Read for Your Life by Pat Williams
Who recommended this book?
This was recommended by John Parrott from Relax Like A Boss.

The title of the book was catchy enough for me. Because I came across this book when I was struggling with reading. Maybe at that time, I just knew that reading is a healthy habit but not got a solid reason to become a regular reader.

Mr.William has given me the reason to read regularly by shedding light on the benefits of reading. It is full of small exercises, and the author has explained everything in a simple yet appealing way. This book had provoked me to become a life-long reader. So, I know it will be helpful for you too!

If you’re a slow reader, or even just not as fast as you would like to be, each book is taking you hours longer than it could. By learning how to read faster, I am now reading 4-5 times as many books per year as I was before.

This was recommended by Janine Hornsby from Austin Macauley Publishers.

Animal Alphabet is an engaging and colourful book introducing young children to the Alphabet. Lives and habitats of the animals are covered in many of the poems which also relate to some of the other animals in the collection. From ‘Amy the Armadillo’ to ‘Zumba the Zonkey’ (a cross between a male zebra and female donkey), we are transported to the animal world with delightful images reflecting the lives of the animals.

It features a dog called Dido, Colin the Cat (a rather hungry one), a punk skunk called Sebastian, a rather sick dinosaur, a fat Turtle and a pig called Priscilla. Not forgetting the infamous Queenie the Quadrasaurapod! Come and join the animals on the farm, in the jungle, up in the sky, under the sea and the house next door.
