Book-Lender offers a curriculum linked high quality non-fiction book solution great for independent reading activities and supporting the learning journey.

Winterbourne Nursery and Infant School,

To have these books at the start of the term as a kick-off to the topic will be great and to be able to select in advance online and plan how to use them will work well and save us time. We are sharing the resources across classes. The fiction is being used in Years 4, 5 and 6 for guided reading. The Foundation and Nursery classes are sharing the resources and they are really enjoying the books.

Grimoldby Primary School

The KS1 boxes were great. It’s fantastic to have the resources in the classroom to be able to return to and not hunt out every time I need to use them. The Dinosaurs books in particular are going down a storm. (Book-Lender) is ridiculously useful and something we’ve missed since our SLS disappeared. We’ve really enjoyed using it.
