Booktrust have just released their Best Book Guide 2012. It gives the details of what they consider the best books of the year in four age bands; 5 years and under, 5 – 8 years, 9 – 12 years, and teen and young adult. For each book along with the book details and a picture of the cover they give a description of the book and age ratings for both interest level and reading age. There are some wonderful books listed in each category, I’ve added a few to my wishlist and a few to my shopping list for young relatives this Christmas. If you’re interested in children’s books I’d say it’s well worth a look.
