Recommended Reads – Pamela Butchart Books

Tahjae and Juwana from Class 5 wanted to record their views on their favourite books by Pamela Butchart. The series is very popular in school, we even had to buy more copies to keep up with demand! Pamela has been very supportive of the children and they have loved to hear about her responding to our tweets. Please watch the video and then leave them a comment below.
