This is a guide for parents who would like some help with books that they could buy or borrow from the library for their children, once they get to Level 23/4 or above.
Below is a list (by no means comprehensive!) of suggested authors and titles.
Once your child is at this stage in reading, please avoid authors such as Philip Pullman or Anthony Horowitz, or the Harry Potter series which are much more complex on many different levels and can prove difficult for the children to follow (although you can read them to the children yourselves, of course). Our aim is to foster a love of reading and, at times, it is important that they read books where they find the text ‘easy’, encouraging confidence and comprehension. I hope you find this list useful!
