Top Tips help children enjoy reading:

  • Find out what they’re interested in and help them to find reading material that connects to their passions. Use the challenge booklist or useful online resources online including Book Trust’s Book Finder.
  • Start conversations about books. Encourage children to talk about what they’ve read and describe what they did and didn’t like about it. 
  • Suggest they find out more about their favourite authors. Many authors have their own websites and YouTube channels.
