2022 has been a year of change for the UK. Three Prime Ministers, the loss of our longest reigning monarch and the ascension of King Charles III. We've also seen big changes here on LoveReading4Kids. In July we launched as an online bookshop with social purpose, working to deliver 10% off RRPs for our loyal customers, whilst also delivering 25% of the cover price of every physical book sold to UK schools, to help them stock their libraries and engender a life-long love of reading.

Amid difficult times we hope to offer support and funding to schools nationwide to make a positive impact on the lives of our children.

One thing that hasn't changed is that we've spent a year blissfully surrounded by and shouting about brilliant books. Each year thousands of children's books are published and each month we feature our favourites, all categorised by age range and themes. Our expert reviews and downloadable extracts make it easy for you to choose the best books for your kids. 

After much debate between our editorial experts, here are books we think are the very best of the best of 2022. 

We hope you enjoy the selection. So, browse away and make sure you haven't missed out on any of our 'must reads' of the year.

And why not also check our Book Awards category which lists all the shortlisted and winning books for the most prestigious awards of 2022.

Don't forget you can buy these books at the click of a button from our online store, with 10% off RRPs - AND make a difference to schools across the UK.
