Each chapter features case-study material and provides examples of planning from schools that have successfully created thriving reading cultures through schemes such as reading assemblies, book clubs, library loyalty cards, school book evenings and quizzes.

′Lockwood has written a useful, supportive book which will help teachers and librarians...He describes the background and summarises the research and then proposes thoroughly practical programmes′ - Carousel
′Michael Lockwood has produced an excellent, practical overview and analysis of what works in the primary school to promote reading for
pleasure....Lockwood′s work is grounded and valuable to those who need it most - teachers in the classroom working hard to engender a love of reading′ - English Drama Media
`This book is first class. It puts the matter very clearly and succinctly, and presents a great deal of evidence to support the argument that pleasure is not a frivolous extra, but the very heart and essence of what reading is about. It also gives readers plenty of ideas for carrying the principle into the classroom, and for justifying it...This is an excellent piece of work, which I hope will find a place on every staffroom bookshelf′ - Philip Pullman
