50 Children’s Books All Adults Should Read – For Reading Addicts

Looking for tips on how to engage your teenager with reading, and keep the reading habit? Make sure they see you reading! Why not read a book together? A lot of teen fiction is crossover, and appeals to both teenagers and adults. This article from For Reading Addicts is very useful if you are looking for some good ‘book recs’ to start the ball rolling. 🙂

Here’s a wee PowerPoint I made for our P7 Transition Parents’ Event last week. It’s packed full of sound advice I garnered from the Scottish Book Trust and World Book Day 2017.
