Customer Reviews

Every aspect of dealing with BookLife has been professional, organised and I can happily say, a pleasure! The selection of books was outstanding, and the huge bonus is that they arrived in a matter of days, fully banded and labelled. Our pupils were reading them within hours, and I cannot thank everyone at BookLife enough for their outstanding service.

Georgina, Head Teacher

Booklife have been superb in supporting our literacy and reading focus as a SEMH school. Our students have loved the vibrant, informative, and engaging books supplied and there has been a dramatic upturn in reading at each of our provisions. Booklife were prompt with delivery and ensured that we had schools full of books within days, for our students to enjoy.

James, Assistant Head Teacher

Good value, good quality Clearly organised catalogue of book-banded levelled booked, they do the job. Nice variety of stories suitable for a wide range of backgrounds from a range of schemes.

Stuart W.

Excellent quality and price

Kayleigh G.

Reading this book in class prompted some good discussions between the students and some interesting questions to the teacher. a valuable resource.

Tim F.

The children are so excited to read "real" books as their home reading books. They are of good quality and come with lime stickers already on them which saved us a job.

Nicola J.

This book is great to use one on one or with children in a small group. With clear explanations and some really good activities to help children to understand and make sense of how they are feeling. I loved the breathing star!

Nicola M.

I use it as a resource for circle time so children can identify their feelings and then find strategies to deal effectively with their emotions.

Anamaria O.

Great set of books for our Turquoise Colour Band catalogue at school.

Dave B.

Amazing service, really helpful staff who were very quick to respond to any queries I had. The books arrived quickly and the children can’t wait to start reading them all. Will definitely be using again.

Kirsty, Dean C of E School.

Thank you so much for all your help and persistence to ensure we have received an amazing deal. The school has been short of books for a long time and this will make an incredible difference for our pupils.

Heather, Teacher

We were sent a selection (one of each colour book band) to look at as we wanted to ensure that the books matched the new phonics programme that we are buying into. This was really important to us as we wouldn't have been confident to place an order if the books didn't match our taught phases. All of the books explain the sounds and phases and match Letters and Sounds and their progression. As a result we have ordered a lot of these books now and have recently placed an order for additional books in certain phases.

Pippa, Primary School Teacher

I just wanted to say how very grateful we are for all your help regarding our last minute book order. The service we received and the speed was brilliant. We would highly recommend your service. Thanks again personally for all your help making it happen.

Dawn, Administrative Assistant

Thank you for thinking of us here at Cherry Orchard. Absolutely would love to write a testimonial. We love book match funding our children really benefit for getting more books!

Emma, Assistant Principal

The team have been so helpful and efficient with our order. We have a deadline for ordering and they have been excellent in supporting us with this. We were delighted to be able to order the Little Wandle books at such a good price compared to other sites. As I am sure you are aware, budgets are very tight but we want to provide our children with the best possible learning experience and the offers on your book packs has really supported us to do this.
