Pupils and their parents enjoyed a sunny afternoon of outdoor reading as part of a series of book cafes run by Suffolk’s library services team.

Easton Primary School hosted the event to inspire children to read more with their parents and to learn about the county’s mobile library van for schools.

Diane Payne, the school’s literacy co-ordinator, said it was a “lovely afternoon” and praised the library service for providing “great advice” to parents about suggested books their children might like.

“At Easton we like to have a partnership approach to reading; we’ll teach the children to read, but it’s good for parents to be involved so the pupils can understand the pleasure of reading,” she said.

The Book Cafes also visited Capel St Mary Primary School on Thursday, and will visit Broke Hall Primary School in Ipswich on Friday and Woodhall Primary School in Sudbury on Monday, July 7.
