  5. 5. Aidan Chambers • Creating a positive reading environment – Displays – Book supply – Reading areas – Reading time – Reading aloud – Book owning – Selecting reading material A culture of reading, which exhibits these characteristics, must be embraced by the entire school. Reading should not just be the teacher-librarian’s domain.

Aidan Chambers Response: Formal Talk, Book Gossip, Response, Enjoying it again Reading: Time to read, Hearing it done, Doing it for yourself Selection: Bookstock, Availability, Presentation, accessibility From: Chambers, A.
