Passionate about children's reading

At Peters we have decades of experience, and we're passionate about inspiring children and young people to read.

We believe all young people should have access to great books, and inspiring spaces to enjoy them in. Our librarians and curriculum specialists read and review more than 10,000 newly published children's and young adult books every year, so we can help and advise on your reading requirements.

Each week our librarians and curriculum specialists highlight the most exciting new fiction and non-fiction titles – books we feel are unmissable library and classroom essentials which will grab students' attention and get them reading for pleasure.

Our customers say

Peters made us feel so welcome. The students got tea and biscuits and were able to buy books for themselves too, at a discount. The layout is amazing and the stock is really good - there's so much to choose from!

Helen Emery, Learning Resource Manager, King Edward VI School, Lichfield

I visited the Peters showroom in December and it was wonderful! I was like a kid in a sweet shop, there were 1000’s and 1000’s of books to choose from. I was made to feel very special and welcome. Jude, the Showroom Manager, was particularly knowledgeable; what she does not know about children’s books is not worth knowing. The great thing about the showroom was that I came away with not only the books I had intended but a bounty of new books which Jude suggested to capture the children's interest and imagination. I can’t wait to come back again.

Domonique Lowe, Literacy Co-ordinator at Blakedown Primary School

Peters' library reorganisation service has been invaluable in helping us move forward in developing a love of reading across the school. They provided us with such high-quality reading material, as well as removing any outdated books. The children have been so excited with the new books, and the teachers found it helpful to have non-fiction books matched to their topics. I can whole-heartedly recommend using Peters to improve reading standards within a school.
