Reading well for children recommends reading to help you deal with worries, feel better and boost your mood.
If you click on the image on the left, you can download a copy of this leaflet which recommends books dealing with a whole range of topics ranging from dealing with tough times to learning more about different conditions (ADHD, ASD, Dyslexia, OCD etc)
The books have been chosen and recommended by leading health professionals (from public libraries, NHS England, Mind, the Royal College of GPs, and the School Library Association) and co-produced with children and families.
The booklist is targeted at children in Key Stage 2 (aged 7-11), but includes a wide range of reading levels to support less confident readers, and to encourage children to read together with their siblings and carers.
If you find a book that interests you, sign-up to your local library where you can borrow it for FREE.
