Classroom posters: Celebrating books and reading
Main Subject
Resource type

10 engaging posters to decorate your KS3-5 classroom or corridors, featuring engaging and though-provoking quotations from leading writers and thinkers on the importance of books and reading, poetry and punctuation.

Celebrating the words of writers as diverse as Marcus Tullius Cicero, Virginia Woolf and Haruki Marukami, these attractive posters can be printed in colour at A4 or enlarged to A3.

Use for a quick open evening display to promote English at A-level or for World Book Day, or as a discussion starter (which quotation do you most agree with/disagree with or find most compelling etc.). 


Example quotations from the posters: 

‘If you only read
the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else
is thinking.’

Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

‘Poetry is what gets lost in translation.’

Robert Frost

‘Books are not made to be believed, but
to be subjected to inquiry. When we consider a book, we mustn't ask ourselves what it says but what it means...’

Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose
