New website for Reading Rocks!

Well, this is all very exciting isn’t it?! A brand-new website – ta dah!

Just over a year ago, in lockdown, I launched the RR Teacher Book Subscription. I can’t tell you the joy it brings me that so many teachers have signed up to this service and enjoyed the books we pack and send out. I know just how time-tight busy educators are – I remember it well from my time as a primary school teacher. I also know that teachers, learning assistants and school librarians really want to keep up to date with quality new children’s literature. So, this is why the book boxes were born – to help those passionate and hard-working educators be the great reading ambassadors they strive to be.

So, the service began in July 2020 and since then we’ve been sending out 1000s of books to educators around the UK. What a privilege!

And we’re loving your feedback on our book subscription boxes!

It’s so great to see the responses to the book choices across social media. It’s so important that the books reflect diversity, contemporary thinking, and the current curriculum. It’s brilliant choosing the books for you all to read and share. Sometimes books are excellent for raising issues and starting discussions, other times they are excellent for making links with the curriculum, and other choices just make a cracking read aloud to show the joy in reading and support your reading for pleasure cultures.

Made for busy lives in mind

The new website developments have been done with you, the busy educator, in mind. I wanted to make the experience of signing up and managing your subscription as easy as possible. I’ve listened to your feedback and requests and really hope you’ll find the new account area responds to your needs.

A big thank you!

Thank you all for being the most amazing community of educators, supporting each other and children’s literature. Here’s to the next year of the RR Book Subscription!!!

Cheers

Heather
