The LoveReading4Schools Story

LoveReading4Schools helps thousands of schools across the country keep-up-to-date with the best books available to encourage a reading for pleasure culture in their schools and create lifelong readers in their students.

Providing reading recommendations right across the year groups and key stages, as well as highlighting books in key curriculum areas, LoveReading4Schools and sister website LoveReading4Kids gives the tools, advice and recommendations for even the most reluctant of readers to find their next favourite book. 

Our passion for children’s books ranges from toddlers to teens and ensures that whatever the age, whatever the interest, that there is a steady stream of brilliant book recommendations for every child. 

Our mission is to share book love and our editorial experts select, read and review up to 75 new children's books every month. Every new academic year we also create a recommended reading list for every year group giving teachers, school librarians and parents ideas for new reading material.

As well as this, we produce rounds ups of books to support key curriculum areas:

World War I 

World War 2

Black History Month 

The Suffragette Movement

And many of our features give teachers and school librarians ideas for literature to engage, inspire and educate the children in their schools

Inspirational Books 

Reluctant Readers

We have a User Guide to help schools make the most of our features on the site. Once a school signs up, they can create their own dedicated school page, can take our own recommended reading lists and tailor them for every year group.

Our overall mission is to promote reading for pleasure with quality texts that are perfectly pitched for the age group and the curriculum. We have particularly avoided blockbusters, classic or set texts, known to everyone, so that we can include poetry, stunning information texts and inspirational books in which all children and young people can find themselves reflected.

In addition we have an exclusive partnership with Browns Books for Students, the UK’s leading supplier of books for Schools and Colleges to ensure that the books on the site can be bought easily and cost effectively by our school members.

Already supporting over 11,000 schools across the UK, LoveReading4Schools is the one stop shop for teachers, school librarians and parents looking to keep up-to-date with the best books for children to encourage reading for pleasure.

The site is complemented by half-termly newsletters, so sign up today to support literacy in your school.  

Do let us know if there is anything we can help support you on, and welcome to the LoveReading Family.
