Stories for Storytime suggested reading list

Stories for Storytime suggested reading list

Daily storytime should be planned for all children – from Nursery through to Year 6. Our best schools read to their children every single day, sometimes using our suggested stories lists, sometimes their own best-loved books.

Our Stories for Storytime suggested reading list ensures that your children are absorbed in a rich and varied reading culture of nursery rhymes, traditional tales, stories from other cultures, myths and legends plus more recent publications. We have carefully selected stories that share common themes that are built upon year by year. All of these stories are a pleasure to read aloud and discuss with children.

Reading feeds the imagination, it expands horizons and offers new and exciting ways of seeing and making sense of our lives and the world around us.” Michael Morpurgo

For schools in Wales we have produced a supplementary reading list Stories for Storytime in Wales download.
