Age 4–11: Hottest New Titles for Spring 2023
Promote reading for pleasure, excite, engage, and extend readers, inspire writing, and discuss texts in depth with these, brand-new, high-quality texts. We have selected the very best paperbacks published last term for classrooms; they are the top, recently published, books for reception to year 6 classes, and our hottest recommendations to literacy co-ordinators.
The picture books in this collection include such glorious examples as I Remember by Jeanne Willis, a beautifully illustrated and warm story of a boy enjoying time with his grandmother and helping her with her memory; and the story of Waverley the Cat, which introduces the subject of homelessness with a hopeful text and a stunning, vivid, mix of full colour and pencil drawings.
The varied fiction in this collection ranges from the deliciously dark and fabulously fun Creeping Beauty, written in ravishing rhyme by award-winning poet and Children’s Laureate Joseph Coelho; to the evocative, gripping and thought-provoking Beyond the Frozen Horizon, packed with beautiful imagery and powerful ideas of place, stewardship and sustainability.
Watch this space for next term’s recommendations.
