The following are list of texts I would recommend to develop a love of reading, a passion for storytelling and an enthusiasm for writing. I’ve had the pleasure of using them all in class or seeing them used by some outstanding teachers – thank you all for providing such rich inspiration!
I have arranged them into year groups to help you navigate the lists, but please don’t let that limit you. Look around at all the lists until you find something that inspires you and will inspire your class. And of course as soon as I finish typing I’ll come across a new book. So, don’t forget to check back often for the list will be ever expanding and growing – just like our bookshelves!
