The Federation of Children’s Book Groups produces a range of free booklists, including one, It’s a Fact, dedicated to non-fiction for children and young people.
Funded both by the FCBG and a variety of sponsors, these booklists are available for free and can be posted free of charge to anyone in the UK. They’re great for giving out at schools or to community groups. To request any of the booklists please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For other recommended lists of non-fiction books you could check out the past winners of the various non-fiction book awards, for example, all the books shortlisted for the Royal Society’s Young People’s Book Prize can be found here.
