There are a few particular areas in children’s literature that I have a particular interest in, and so this page will archive reading lists for those particular topics. A lot of these titles are crowdsourced so my thanks to everyone who has contributed. All of the lists are editable, so I will continue to update them should I come across new titles (and I’m more than happy for you to add a title should you see it missing!).
- Angry female characters / anger in children’s literature
- Bereavement in children’s literature
- Gifted and talented characters in children’s literature
- Menstruation in children’s literature
- Read Your Way Around the UK – books from every county of the UK **nb: this spreadsheet is now archived and not updated*
*A lot of the lists have multiple sheets – make sure you scroll right to the bottom of the sheet to see if there’s anything you’ve missed!
