Nominate your favourite books here
What’s the book that has taught YOU the most? Tell us, and receive three inspirational literacy resource packs, just for voting!
Books have such an important part to play in any classroom - and it’s a fair bet that every teacher has a favourite title to build lessons around and share with pupils. Whether it’s exploring ideas of difference and inclusivity with Wonder, or making exciting cross-curricular links with Kensuke’s Kingdom, educators are used to creating rich learning experiences from familiar texts, often returning to them year after year and finding fresh inspiration every time.
But what are the books that have most influenced teachers themselves? Which literary offering taught YOU the most - and what, exactly, did you learn from it? Would it still resonate with pupils today? These are the questions we’re asking for this year’s Teach Primary Book Awards Teachers’ Choice category; and we can’t wait to hear what you’re going to tell us!
It only takes a moment, so be sure to nominate your choice before entries close in:

There are many prizes that recognise brilliant writing for young people – but the Teach Primary Book Awards is unique in highlighting titles that not only will children love to read, but that will also support learning – for example, by opening up opportunities for deeper discussion and encouraging language play. These are stories that teachers can confidently suggest to parents and share with pupils; with specially commissioned lesson plans based around them and made available within the pages of Teach Primary and Teach Early Years magazines, as well as online as free downloads.
Discover the very best books for Reception, KS1 and KS2 readers by heading over to read about last year’s winners. Our dedicated and experienced judges used a unique set of criteria to assess shortlisted books. We hope you – and your learners – will enjoy last year’s list of finalists as much as they did.
