Recommended Reads

At Kimble we are really passionate about our children's love of reading and the enjoyment of reading for pleasure. Not because it ticks off an objective or sets up a writing opportunity but, well, just because! 

Each week in the Newsletter we will share a recommended read from one of our children with a short description of the book and suggested age range...Please let me know if you read it and what you thought about it. How many can you read throughout the year?


December's Recommended Read: The Christmasaurus and The Naughty List by Tom Fletcher

Recommended by: Air Class

Suggested Age: Age 6 and Over

Description: The Christmasaurus is back! Get ready for the magical festive adventure from bestselling author Tom Fletcher!

You know about the Naughty List, right? Well, this year, the Christmasaurus is on a mission to track down children who have found themselves on the Naughty List to help them turn naughty to nice!

This is a collection of stories about mischievous kids learning the error of their ways, but it's also about sharing the true spirit of Christmas and realising that sometimes, things aren't quite as they first appear...



We love reading at GKS and are currently revamping our library and book corners. Below are links to our Amazon wish list for books. We will be fundraising for these over the year, but in the meantime, we wondered if any families had copies of these books at home they no longer need and would like to donate? If you are a charity shop fanatic, then please keep an eye out for these as second hand is fine too. Alternatively, you may feel you are in a position to purchase books to donate via the list below.
