The Teachers’ Reading Challenge is an initiative run by The Reading Agency in partnership with the Open University that encourages teachers to read and comment on six or more children’s books over the summer. The 2023 Teachers’ Reading Challenge run from 26th June to 31st October.

The Teachers’ Reading Challenge grew out of research that demonstrates that teachers’ knowledge of children’s literature is essential for developing a rich reading curriculum and encouraging a reading habit in young people. Teachers sign up to the Challenge on the dedicated website where they can post reviews, get book recommendations and share best practice with other members of the Teachers’ Reading Challenge Community.
