TO get Rawmarsh youngsters wheely interested in reading, author Michaela Morgan took them aboard two vintage buses!

Pupils from Ryecroft Infant School, Monkwood Primary School and St Joseph’s RC Primary School boarded buses at Parkgate as part of World Book Day celebrations.

Children’s author Michaela Morgan read stories aloud, as part of a scheme sponsored by Parkgate Shopping that aims to help youngsters from Rawmarsh and Parkgate fall in love with books.

Backed by W H Smith and run by the National Literacy Trust’s Young Readers’ Programme, the project donated free books and vouchers to 180 children from the three Rawmarsh schools chosen.

Denis Copeland, Manager of Parkgate Shopping, said: “We are delighted to be working with the National Literacy Trust. The three key ingredients are enjoyment, choice and ownership.”
