Welcome to Bookbuzz
Bookbuzz is a reading programme from BookTrust that aims to help schools inspire a love of reading in 11 to 13-year-olds.
Participating schools give their students the opportunity to choose their own book to take home and keep from a list of 17 titles. They are all carefully selected by a panel of experts to ensure quality, suitability and to encourage reading for pleasure.
Find out how Bookbuzz can get your Year 7 and 8 students excited about reading. All this for just £3 per student.
