There could not be a better time to browse through these chapters in time as we celebrate Children’s Book Week.
Its aim is to inspire youngsters to get involved in the great world of reading.
And to get you in the spirit of the occasion, here is a selection of book scenes from places including Grindon Infants School, Sunderland High School, and the First Steps Kindergarten.
Take a look and see who you recognise in these Sunderland Echo archive photos.
