Inspiring Reads

The Animal World Encyclopaedia by Hamlyn

I used to go to bed early and thumb through the pages of this book to find new animals that I had never heard of - like the echidna which eventually led me to Australia and a quest that was the start of my BBC career.

Deacon Manu recommends:
Bible Stories

Bible Stories are great for reading to my children - with lots of little books put together so you can read to them in short bits.

My Time by Bradley Wiggins

“I enjoy reading about my sporting heroes and Bradley Wiggins is an icon of British sport. My Time is a great read with amazing insights into the world of cycling.”

Y Dylluan Wen by Angharad Jones

This book is far better than what the cover suggests!

James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl

This book is weird and exciting – I loved Roald Dahl when I was in school and still like to read his books!

Liam Williams

Liam Williams recommends:
The Twits by Roald Dahl

The Twits by Roald Dahl is a great book for reading with kids as it’s so disgusting and funny but has a good message.

Nigel Owens recommends:
Animal Farm by George Orwell

Animal Farm is one of my favourite books - I remember reading it in school and being fascinated by the concept and humour in the book.
