Recommended Reads 2019

Children’s Books Ireland produces an annual reading guide detailing the best books of the year for readers aged 0–18. Our reading guides and lists are designed to connect young readers with the right books for them and with stories they will love.

"This year in the reading guide we’ve included a specially curated section on the theme of the environment –protecting it, celebrating it and embracing it."
