January 2019 Children's booklist - Epic Tales (myths and legends)

Childrens composite

Epic Tales

This month we are thinking about our modern retellings of myths and legends.

We have picked some of the best books to help get children and young people interested or inspired in these classical stories. We have selected six Epic Tales for young people (aged 12+) which is on our Reading Hack resource page.

You can find out more about some of our picks on the Summer Reading Challenge news page.

There is also a Chatterbooks pack based upon this booklist.

National Reading Group Day 2019

This year, National Reading Group Day will take place on 15 June, and to celebrate we want you to tell us the books that inspire you to make a change in the world. Both fiction and non-fiction books can be an incredibly powerful way of encouraging us to take action and stand up for what we believe in, and we want to know which books get your group talking about the world and how you can make a difference.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
