Marcus Rashford Book Club
The pupils in St Catherine were delighted to receive their own copies of Tom Percival's 'Silas and the Marvellous Misfits'. The books were given to us as part of the Marcus Rashford Book Club in partnership with the National Literacy Trust.
The Marcus Rashford Book Club is a reader-recommends programme created by England International footballer and child food poverty campaigner Marcus Rashford MBE and Macmillan Children’s Books.
The book club aims to encourage and nurture a love of reading in children, and launched in June 2021 with its first title, A Dinosaur Ate My Sister by Pooja Puri, illustrated by Allen Fatimaharan.
The second title in the book club is Silas and the Marvellous Misfits, written and illustrated by Tom Percival, published on 14 October 2021. The book helps children to love their differences and discover the joy of being themselves.
We hope they enjoy reading the book, and look forward to their thoughts and reviews next term!
