Peters is the UK’s leading specialist supplier of children’s books and furniture to schools, academies, public libraries and multi-academy trusts, and they are passionate about inspiring children and young people to read. 

Reading for pleasure is one of the biggest indicators of pupils’ wellbeing and attainment, even more so than parental education or socio-economic background, so engaging children with books from an early age is key. Their qualified teachers and librarians read and review more than 10,000 newly published children’s and young adult books every year, so are ideally placed to help, advising on everything from the latest fiction and non-fiction to phonics and reading schemes to suit your requirements.
