All this week, the County Council and the library service are promoting the Summer Reading Challenge on social media - and Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service are getting involved.
We want the whole of Norfolk to get behind the challenge and encourage children to read for fun over the summer. All week, Norfolk County Council will be posting children's book recommendations from county councillors and libraries staff from the County Council's twitter and libraries' Twitter and Facebook accounts, and will be encouraging other people to do the same using their own social media accounts. If you have a social media account we'd love you to get involved and tweet a children's book recommendation using the #passabook hashtag.
NFRS is getting involved by getting pictures of staff from around the Service, promoting their favourite books and posting it here, as well as on our facebook and twitter.
Our third recommendation is from Firefighter Chris Bartram who is a Retained Firefighter atÂ Long StrattonÂ fire station.
This is what Chris had to say about Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl.
"I wasnâ€™t that into books when I was little, but then we read this one in class and it really captured my imagination! Â Iâ€™m quite adventurous and so this book really suited me, I can remember it being the first time that a book had me on the edge of my seat! Â I loved the idea of the Fantastic Mr Fox winning over the farmers, even though he was only little (and a fox!). Â A happy ending is always good â€“ but I wonâ€™t tell you that bit... you have to go read it yourself!"
