February 2019 Children's booklist - letters, diaries and memoirs

Letters, Diaries and Memoirs

This month we have loved picking our favourite picture and illustrated and middle grade books which are either written in letter or diary form or are memoirs.

We have also selected six books for this theme perfect 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.

We’ve also created a Chatterbooks pack which focuses on six brilliant books from the booklist that can be used as part of a Chatterbooks session.

Hive and The Reading Agency

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...
