We have worked with schools for more than 20 years to inspire reading and raise attainment, and have access to more than 140,000 carefully selected books and resources.
The Norfolk Reading Trail
Bring excitement and interest into the learning of independent reading with a loosely structured and attractive package, using ‘real’ books and leisure non-fiction with good vocabulary.
Children will enjoy the personal challenge of a map and stickers to chart their reading development, and discover a broader range of wonderful books as selected by our team. Each loan collection of 30 items is bespoke, collated to your pupils’ requirements and includes teachers’ notes, a map for each pupil (up to 30), stickers and certificate templates.
The map shows real Norfolk roads and towns each representing a different genre, for example animals, fantasy. Children obtain stickers by reading one or more books in the different genres to place over the appropriate destination on the map. Each map also suggests further activities to encourage library use and family engagement.

Promoting reading for pleasure
ELS staff are highly skilled at working with children and young people of all ages to inspire them to read more widely. Creative and engaging sessions are designed with the school’s needs at the heart. They can be short, or extend to half day or whole day experiences for small groups to whole schools. Sessions can be themed to reflect special topics or a wide variety of books will be shared to engage children with new titles, discuss different genres and methods of choosing books. A selection of books can be left with the school for a term. There is also an opportunity to combine your children’s mobile visit with a reading for pleasure session. Find out more on the Children’s Mobile page.
