In these strange, lockdown days of COVID-19, there is a lot of worry, and rightly so, about young people’s mental health. The Reading Agency have this covered! They have lists of books on their Reading Well website.
You will find a Reading Well for Children booklist, Reading well for young people and other reading well booklists that would be a great starting point for talking to young people about how they are feeling. In the Resources tab you will find handy displays for plasma screens, infographics, posters, assemblies, and much more. I recommend visiting the site and using the resources as a way of preparing your students to cope with what they – and all of us – have been through during lockdown.
