At Rye College, we recognise the importance for children of all ages to grow up with a rich variety of books as they develop their deep love of reading.

We want to support them in becoming avid and lifelong readers. In addition to unlocking a child's imagination (allowing for a greater degree of creative stimulation), reading is a crucial tool for all children in the development of a range of skills, including reading and writing, and speaking and listening.  

It is also invaluable in the extension of vocabulary and the ability to become inquisitive and resourceful, in order to develop a deeper understanding of the world around them.  

With this in mind, we are proud to publish our list of 'recommended reading'. We hope that this, in addition to our exploration of the 'literary canon', promotes a love of reading, along with an appreciation of its importance, to all of our students.
