How to use Lovemybooks

  • The books are organised in themes popular with young children

  • You can find books for your child by theme or search by age range.

  • Use the search bar to find individual favourite titles, authors or illustrators.

  • Each book has suggestions for ways of sharing the story – for example reading aloud, talking about the book, retelling the story, watching a video.

About the Lovemybooks team
At lovemybooks we have many years’ experience both nationally and internationally in developing a love of books and reading with children, parents, teachers and student teachers.

We have extensive experience of working with publishers, authors and illustrators, TV, and agencies such as the British Council and Department for Education.

The three of us have developed and led highly successful national reading projects and are authors of published books on children’s reading and literacy.

As well as being teachers and mums ourselves, we were formerly the senior education team at the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE), and are now university educators and independent consultants.

Our work has a proven track record in both reading research and practice.
