Not all books on the list are recommended text for all children.The online system allows a student to select any book from the book list, regardless of the year level to which it has been allocated. Readers can choose what interests them and what doesn’t. Teachers or coordinators approve, through online verification, each student’s reading list as appropriate and challenging for the individual. If you have any concerns about the content of titles on the book lists, we encourage you to become involved in your child's book selections so they are appropriate.
You should be able to find many suitable books in your school or local library. You may have books at home that you can add to your children’s reading lists. Remember too that you can add books that are not listed on the challenge book list - these can be added as personal choice books.
The 2019 book list can be readily updated to rectify errors in bibliographic details or in representing books in a series, or omissions from a series. The book list can also be searched by the category 'Out of print'.
If you notice errors, omissions or titles which are out of print, email the Premier's Reading Challenge team.
