About Me

Well, hello everyone and welcome to Cat and Mouse Reading... 

    My name is Marianne and this is the sister blog to Books, Life and Everything.  On Cat and Mouse Reading..., I want to look at Children's books, both old and new. There will be some familiar favourites and lots of the new stories which there are to share. 

    I have always been involved in education, initially as a secondary school English Teacher but also as a primary school teacher with responsibility for the Library and most recently, with children who have difficulties with literacy. I am a qualified Specialist Teacher in Specific Learning Difficulties (Associate Member of the British Dyslexia Association) and I have taught adults who are themselves training to teach dyslexic pupils. I hope to include books which are great for dyslexic readers and maybe, increase that section to signpost good resources and approaches as well. But that at the moment is some way off!

    My main motivation in setting up this blog is to celebrate the great range of children's books that there are out there and to share the excitment and sheer joy there is to be had from introducing children to good books- and there are so many- where to begin?

     Thanks for dropping by Cat and Mouse Reading... . If you have any comments or questions, please send them in. You can contact me on catandmousereading@gmail.com. You can also follow me on Twitter on @bookslifethings or on Bloglovin.

Happy reading, Marianne
