We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!Emily Jacques
When they've been reading all year at school, it's not surprising kids want to run around frantically outside and have some fun when summer finally arrives. But the long holidays are also an ideal time to build on good reading habits, and foster a real life-long love of books away from the classroom...
Our summer reading selection this year has been "such fun to put together," says one of our Lovereading4kids 'expert voices' Julia Eccleshare. We're sure children of all ages will have a great deal of fun reading every one of them. Some are from well-known and well-loved children's authors, others are from exciting new authors. They are all fantastic reads.
There’s something to appeal to all. From baby to teenager you’ll find books broken down by age on this page and on other pages on the site. Why not take a look at books for reluctant readers, dyslexia friendly books and books we think are Great for Boys? If you're looking for something for babies and toddlers, check out the wonderful Picture Book Party from Walker or one of the Campbell Books range and the Pippi Longstocking stories are perfect for newly independent readers. For the Pony Mad, there's a section just for them and for those who love a good mystery? - the Alex Rider books are great holiday reads and have been reissued to mark the 15th Anniversary. For all things Alice see our special section celebrating 150 years of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Out and About is filled with clever ideas for activities over the holiday..and if you want a prize winner try our Carnegie Greenway section.
There are eBook formats available for most of the books in our Summer Reading selection, but each month further eBooks can be found here.
