Book Talk cards

Don’t miss our team’s downloadable book talk cards, perfect for Drop Everything and Read (DEAR), as a once-a-week alternative to daily reading sessions, or as a focus text for whole class reading time. 

Based on exciting new reads from a range of publishers, these printable PDFs feature discussion points and further reading suggestions. They cover a range of recommended new titles selected specifically to appeal to each year group and to help you support your pupils in generating the wider discussion around books.
