Summer reads: The best fiction books for all ages!

As we learnt from Johnny (this week's podcast guest), developing reading skills can often be difficult. However, there are plenty of techniques you can use to help your child with their natural progression. Including finding books which your children are actually interested in!

Whether you're spending your summers abroad or relaxing in the back garden, we have curated a list of summer reads perfect for any age! In this week's blog post we delve into the world of fiction, categorising our favourites by different ages of reading.

Whichever book you choose, you are giving your child the chance to expand their imaginations. Escaping into a book allows them to build characters whilst developing emotive feelings which can be applied to everyday life.

If you're looking for a way to motivate your child through their summer reading lists then The Summer Reading Challenge may be just for you! It's an online reading challenge which allows you to keep track of reading, find book recommendations and take part in interactive games - what a great idea!
