Children at Oakley CofE School were left spellbound by a reading from The Selfish Crocodile author Faustin Charles as part of their book week.

The emphasis of the annual event was on shared reading, with children encouraged to read in groups and with their parents.

A sponsored read has also been taking place to raise money for new books for the school’s library.

A number of Welsh stories were also being read on Friday to mark St David’s Day.
