Angela-S Reading Inspiration

I’m the kind of parent who wants to discuss the latest hero movie or middle-grade book series on the school run. I grew up on the Lord of the Rings books and I have a background in education & publishing.

I believe all kids can enjoy wonderful story-telling. I've created this blog to provide a resource for sci-fi, fantasy and adventure-loving families - to find great books, activities & entertainment for the whole family - parents included!
