Reading List

Reading For Pleasure: Book Lists
What are the book lists?

These reading lists are intended as a guide only to encourage children to read for pleasure. Each list contains suggested books which are recommended for a given year group by literacy specialists. The books cover a wide variety of tastes and their suitability may or may not be right for your child. Parents and carers please make that decision with your child as you are the best judge of which books from the lists you would be happy for your child to read.

Which list should I use?
Although the books are sorted into year group lists you may wish to dip into lists above and below your child’s year group. This will give you the flexibility to find books that are a challenge or a comfortable read or just a wider selection of titles.

Please note that the lists for the older children do contain books that are aimed at emotionally and developmentally more mature children.
