Everything I think is important about Lovemybooks is right there in its name!” SF Said, author

“Lovemybooks is a treasure trove of well researched guidance on books and reading” Alex Law, Head teacher

Parents and schools are concerned about the impact of loss of learning on their children over the lasta 17 months. Catch-up programmes are being discussed. During lockdowns we were delighted that our resources were so well-used by schools across the country and the the world. With  school holidays approaching, parents who want to carry on fostering a love of reading with their children can: read regularly to their children, even when independent readers, introduce children to exciting new books, wallow in the pleasures of familiar books, step into the story world and share book-based fun – for example by acting out the story together with puppets or toys.
Look at our topics and themes and age-group lists for book suggestions, booktalk ideas, lots of creative activities and advice about reading with your child.

See our 7-11 pages for downloadable activity booklets and our selected weblinks to support home learning.  

Join the Summer Reading Challenge run by The Reading Agency in partnership with Public Libraries.

Mouse creates a map and sets off to find the moon. This proves quite an adventure in which he finds true friendship.
Claire tells us about sharing The Marvellous Moon Map with her two daughters:‘My girls are 6 and 3 years old and love going on adventures, anything from a walk in the woods to a weekend camping at the seaside. This beautifully illustrated book really captured their imaginations. I think what they enjoyed most is the sense of adventure as mouse sets out to find the moon.’
