The Summer Book Club provides a range of supporting resources. These include:

  • A presentation pack to introduce the Summer Book Club title at a transition assembly or meeting in the summer term.
  • A set of questions and activities to help pupils engage with the book over the summer.
  • Resources to run a discussion group in the autumn, including a live online Q&A with the author.
  • Access to discounted copies of the Summer Book Club title.

Cost: Supporting resources are free and discounts are available on sets of the Summer Book Club title. E-book editions are also available for 99p.
