It's Good to Read!

“What can I read? ” “Are there any more like this one?” “Has she written any other books?” “Is this the right book for him?” “What's this book about?” Are these the kind of questions which you want answered? This site is for parents, teachers and other people responsible for youngsters who want to know what's in the books their children are reading and what else might be on offer.

What will I find here?

Information about books for young people, aimed at parents who haven't the time to assess every book that their children read but who want to know what's between the covers. You can view the books simply by initial (across the top of every page); or by author, publisher, intended audience or genre. In addition, there are lists of suggestions.

For more information, see About or get in touch.
