Best Book Guide for Children 2013

Every year the Booktrust compile the 'Best Book Guide for Children' to help parents know which are the best books to purchase for children.  The guide is divided into four age groups and includes a brief synopsis about each book featured.  It also gives each book two appropriate ages:

Interest Age: The age at which children would be interested in listening to the content but they would probably need the story read to them because they haven't yet acquired the necessary reading skills.

Reading Age: The age at which children should be able to read the book independently although some may require some support.
