Give a Book reviews

With schools temporarily closed, we’re reminded of the importance of reading and the joy it can bring.

Are you reading a book which you’d like to review? Is it an exciting adventure, a murky mystery or a fantastical tale?

We’re on the hunt for reviews written by young people aged 5 – 16 years to feature on our website and inspire others to get reading. Why not take some time this week to write a book review?

Send your review (300 words maximum), along with your name and age, to

Each Friday, we will select a review to publish on our website. We hope that lots of you will get involved while you’re at home and help us build a selection of reviews by young people, for young people!

Need some book ideas? Why not have a look at our past Book of the Month choices for some classics for all ages. Or have a look at BookTrust, The Reading Agency, and The National Literacy Trust for lots of good ideas.
