Books we love at WHIS’

At West Hove Infants, we have put together a list of books that we absolutely love for each year group, and we wanted to share them with you! We read loads of these books at school and have added more to the lists that we’d recommend for the children to either read or have read to them at home.

Many of the books are linked to the topics we teach, but there are also some classics that we just had to include!

Hopefully this list might offer inspiration if you’re planning presents or taking a trip to the library or bookshop.

If you’d like to learn more about any of these books, please feel free to talk to your child’s teacher.

Keep your eyes peeled for staff recommendations coming soon to our website.
