The BookTrust is the UK's largest reading charity and reaches millions of children every year with books, resources and support to get every child reading, regularly and by choice. They have some fantastic tools on their website:

  • their Great Book Guide lists the top 100 new books released in the last year and is searchable by age
  • their 100 best books over 100 years for classic books is also searchable by age
  • every month, they review their pick of the best reads for a variety of ages - they also link to their back-catalogue of reviews in previous months.
