Part of mural painted in child's bedroom by me and @angelustonio featuring lots of classic book characters...
I asked my class if they would prefer me to buy them a Christmas card each or a couple of extra books for the classroom. Unanimous vote for books. They're all happy, and I'm delighted that I don't have to write out 30 cards, of which at least 25 will be left in their trays.
