About LoveReading4Schools

LoveReading is the UK’s leading portfolio of book recommendation websites. Our mission is to promote a love of books and reading to all by offering the tools, advice and information needed to help our members and browsers to find their next favourite book.

LoveReading4Schools is a critical part of this and one we take very seriously. As a community we believe we have a social responsibility to support time-strapped teachers and librarians in schools to help engender a life-long love of reading in their students.

This new website relaunched in January 2019 and comes with tons of added functionality and a fully updated set of reading recommendation lists for every year group from Early Years to Year 11.

In addition, we will be regularly publishing other lists of great relevance and importance for schools today including lists of Inspirational Books, Cultural Books, Reluctant Readers Recommendations and Mental Health and Wellbeing.

It will also house every book we read, review and recommend on our sister site LoveReading4Kids which was relaunched in October.
