At Billesley we LOVE a good book; adults and children alike!  We are determined to inspire our children to be wonderful little bookworms with a thirst for knowledge and the passion for a good old yarn.

Here we invite EVERYONE- children, parents, teachers, and all our lovely school support staff to recommend a good book that they have read.  Why not share what you have read by creating a book review and inspire others to read it too?

All recommendations published on the website will enter a raffle and each half term a winner will be selected to win a prize.  Don’t delay - recommend today!

( Also, make sure you read the book reviews to get the inside story and help you decide what to read next!)
