Drawing on the author's internationally-recognised experience in this field, this book will be essential reading for anyone looking to develop reading in schools.

Did your school encourage a life-long love of reading? Children who identify as readers are three times more likely to have good mental wellbeing. A reading culture that permeates a school can transform it into a space where reading is supported, encouraged, normalized, and valued. Creating a Reading Culture in Primary and Secondary Schools will help teachers and librarians to

  • advocate for the importance of a whole-school reading culture with recent research in this field;
  • select from a number of research-supported strategies underpinning a whole-school reading culture to tailor your school's approach according to resourcing and priorities;
  • develop a clear trajectory for building and sustaining stakeholder engagement and resourcing, including securing external funding for related initiatives; and
  • plan and manage a multi-faceted approach to enable real change within your school.
