Pupils from the Isle of Ely Primary School were inspired to get reading this week with a little help from an Ely bookshop.
Burrows Bookshop, in High Street Passage, invited the youngsters into the shop to talk about their favourite books and characters.
Each pupil’s favourite book was then marked with a special tag and any copies of their books that are sold at Burrows in the coming weeks will trigger a donation to the Isle of Ely’s library fund.
The initiative was launched back in September after Burrows won a grant from bestselling author, James Patterson, who donated hundreds of pounds to support the independent bookshop and to encourage youngster into reading.
Proprietor Annabel Reddick said: “The Isle of Ely have been supportive and the children were really good so hopefully it will inspire them to pick up a few books and get into reading.”
