Booklists

Updated August 2018

Danny: Do you know any good books set in the Indus Valley?

Me: No.

Seriously – I am regularly asked for book recommendations, so this page is my attempt to help. The pictures below are from my own collection and although I have indicated suggested phases for them, these shouldn’t be taken too literally. As they are mainly picture books, they can be used in a variety ways by imaginative teachers.

As well as my own lists, I can thoroughly recommend the following sources:

Books for Topics – https://www.booksfortopics.com

CLPE – https://www.clpe.org.uk/corebooks

Mathew Tobin – https://padlet.com/p0077346/PictureBookPlan

Emma Rogers – http://emmarogers.org.uk/recommended-texts/

Scottish Book Trust http://scottishbooktrust.com/reading/book-lists/kids

The Book Trust – http://www.booktrust.org.uk/books/children/best-book-guide/

… and if anybody knows any good books set in the Indus valley then let me know!
