Best Books of 2023

We love to hear about which books are popular among our community of primary teachers! 

Each year we invite teachers to tell us about their best children’s books from the past twelve months.  Our panel has been searching for the best classroom read-alouds, the books that were the biggest hit with their pupils and the top books to support their curriculum.

See the books that our panel of teachers and librarians chose in the shortlist of the best books of 2023.
