Our Reading Den is a website run by myself, Sam Lamacraft, where children and their parents can discover and share books, find new authors, and explore stories. Books are recommended and reviewed by children who can open their own accounts and create a bookshelf of books they have read.
We are committed to promoting reading for pleasure in primary-aged children and want to encourage children to develop a positive attitude to reading, take ownership for what they want to read, and develop into self-motivated readers.
The books on our shelves are a real mix of the classics, newly published books, and anything in-between. It is our users, Our Denners, who decide what goes on our shelves – who better to recommend children’s books than the children who read them?
Our book lists are created from the most frequently recommended books by Our Denners and from myself, Head Denner, an avid children's book reader and reviewer. We hope you find something the children in your life will love.
