Young City Reads


The concept is simple: one book, by one author is selected for the children of Brighton & Hove (and beyond!) to read, explore, discuss and creatively engage with.

Young City Reads is back for 2019! Visit the Young City Reads 2019 page to find out more about the BIG READ happening in schools across the South East between March and May 2018.

View or download the YCR 2018 REPORT.

Young City Reads aims to:

  • foster the joy of reading for pleasure
  • enthuse and inspire reluctant readers
  • inspire young readers to explore a story’s themes further through conversation and linked activity
  • increase confidence by supporting the development of literacy skills

Taking part is FREE!

All your school needs to do is buy a set of the book for your class or school. The weekly emails and resources are free.

Did you know? Every year the YCR team work hard to raise money for books to ensure that schools who cannot afford book sets can still take part.
