Read and Read. FICTION EXPRESS. Let’s go !!!

ESO and BATX students, ready to start reading.

Cristina Puig has been to our school today to encourage our young students to read through this platform, which wants to foster reading for pleasure as a part of their everyday life.

Reading has a central part in a child’s education and in preparing them for life after school. It helps children develop emotionally, socially, intellectually and culturally. It also underpins successful access to education throughout their school careers and to employment beyond.

Fiction Express has been designed to improve poor reading habits by exciting children about reading and turning them into eager readers through the power of engagement.

An innovative book platform that connects students with professional authors, encouraging reading for pleasure through fun co-creation of stories.

Every half-term, three books are published on our website in weekly chapters. What happens next is entirely up to the readers. Using their votes, they are able to decide where the plot goes next. Then the author will bring the most popular choice to life.

Thank you, Cristina!

It’s been an exciting day for us all!

The School Parents’ Association (AMPA) has contributed to launch this project by financing the 50% of the total amount, so every student will only have to pay 4 euros to read all the books the platform offers.

We are sure it will be worth it!!!
