New Reading Well for children booklist

11th February 2020, 3:15pm | By Ros Griffiths |

The new Reading Well for children booklist has recently launched to coincide with Children’s Mental Health Week. The booklist recommends reading that help children to understand their feelings, worries and how to cope with tough times. The books have been chosen by children, carers, health experts and librarians. They are endorsed by leading health organisations such as NHS England, Mind and the Royal College of GPs.

 

The booklist includes both stories and information books and is targeted at children aged 7-11. Topics covered include: healthy minds, worries, feelings, the world around them, tough times and specific conditions. It also includes a wide range of reading levels to support less confident readers, and to encourage children to read together with their families.

 

These books are free to reserve from any Wiltshire library.

 

There are additional Reading Well booklists for adults and young people on mental health, long term conditions and dementia. To find out more, ask in your local library or visit the Reading Well website.
