Bookbuzz

Bookbuzz is a reading programme from BookTrust that aims to help schools inspire a love of reading in Year 7 and 8 students.

Participating schools give their students the opportunity to choose their own book to take home and keep from a list of 17 titles suitable for 11 to 13-year-olds. They are all carefully selected by a panel of experts to ensure quality and suitability. Bookbuzz is aimed primarily at Year 7 students, but it’s a fantastic opportunity to engage Year 8s with reading too.
