This week we celebrated WORLD BOOK DAY with Nick Sharratt
Save the Children, together with Beanstalk are very aware that not being able to read handicaps children’s progress and have launched a campaign and programme called Born to Read for children who are struggling.
This is a big task and so they have asked if 100 Word Challenge can join in the campaign to ‘Change the Story’ for children.

So far, I've spotted 1 mistake (maybe it was deliberate?) - Can you find it? Also, 2 are silent - can you follow the pen marks for an explanation?
