Books we love!

At Read for Good we are passionate about encouraging children and young people to read what they love. We believe that children who are given the chance to choose what to read, are more likely to enjoy reading in their own time and go on to develop life-long reading habits. This page aims to inspire and guide that core belief in the importance of book choice.

Children and young people should see themselves and their experiences reflected in the books they read for pleasure, and so we aim to share books which naturally portray diversity – age, ability, disability, ethnicity, gender and family types – whilst maintaining appeal.

The books chosen here have been selected by our team because they love them and want to share them with you. There should be something for everyone! For more ideas on what else to read check out our Reading Journeys.
