Pixie is reading her book again…. she loves reading her book over and over! Not just her own book, but lots of books – her favourites which she has in pride of place on her book shelf in her bedroom.
Pixie loves reading – she is curious and reads new books, old books, reference books, comics, magazines, newspapers and of course reads loads of stuff on the internet!
Pixie loves learning about new things and finding out facts – it is fun and makes her more curious!
She does though read some books more than once, often a few times, enjoying them even more the next time around! There is something comforting about a book you know, a character you can relate to, who is maybe LIKE you in some ways, and a story you remember and where you may know the ending, but you still get that same feeling of excitement reading it again.
It is a bit like a comfort blanket, a comfy pair of pyjama’s or a cosy sweater, a kind of reassuring hug. A FAMILIAR feeling, that kind of feeling that makes you feel warm and in your ‘safe place’. Sometimes you really start to like something more, the more you read it – a bit like music. When you hear your favourite pop star’s new song for the first time, you may need to keep hearing it – for it to ‘grow’ on you, to become familiar and you remember the words! Then you start to sing it to yourself… see?
Pixie hopes that all you children out there will read her book over and over and it will become one of your favourites! We have all been having a lot to think about lately and we need our comfort blankets, to be in our familiar zones. Pixie’s book is funny, it rhymes – you can even try singing it! It is a story with a message, but remember that Pixie is ok in the end and is there to be a friend and help you along the way.
Enjoy kids!! Love from Pixie XXX
