Welcome to the Read for Joy Wiki!

This is the wiki for the readforjoy thread which will take place on Twitter every Wednesday.


Read for Joy is intended to become a community of people sharing their knowledge of and passion for children's literature.
We hope that we will gain members from all over the world and recommendations of books representing all cultures and covering all ages up to late teenage.

This wiki is about finding really good books which can be shared with children.We are not aimed exclusively at teachers but anyone interested in children's books - parents, children, teachers, students, librarians, authors, publishers, teaching assistants, grandparents or booksellers.

We will collect the recommendations made on Twitter and also encourage followers to record their favourite books on here.

Books can be dangerous. The best ones should be labelled “This could change your life.” Helen Exley
