Best books by age

Year 3 Reading List

Test

Moving from Year 2 to Year 3 (P4 in Scotland) can be a big jump for children and it can be hard to find new and exciting books for them to read, as they progress through school. Some Year 3s are confident bookworms, devouring book after book, others may need a bit more encouragement to get lost in a story.

Happily, there are so many brilliant books for this age group. Funny books are a great way to get kids this age reading, as are fantasy stories that get their imaginations going. Most books for this age group are still heavily illustrated, although some children may also want to tackle longer books with more text.

See below for our top recommended reads for 7 and 8 year olds - from bestselling series and classic stories from our own childhoods, to brand-new fiction our reviewers loved.
