Teachers Reading Challenge

Find a read

Need help finding something to read? We have all the information you need.

Remember to seek out texts that stretch you beyond your comfort zone, reflect children’s contemporary realities and encompass a wide range of genres (e.g. graphic novels, non-fiction, poetry). To help you we have grouped together different recommended reads to help you select your next book.

How to access books

Here are some tips to help you find and enjoy books and audio books throughout the Challenge.

Already read a book?

If you have already read a book, you can add it to your profile and be a step closer to reaching your reading goal. You may also want to review your book and chat about what you plan to read in the Review and Blether section of the website.

Review your knowledge

Review your knowledge of children’s texts with this useful tool from the Reading for pleasure programme at the Open University.

Book recommendations

We have a selection of book recommendations and booklists to inspire you, giving you plenty of ideas for your next read. Remember you can also add books to your wishlist from the Book Sorter.
