Have you heard of Iceland’s tradition of Jolabokaflod? It roughly translates as ‘Christmas book flood’. Icelanders exchange books as gifts on Christmas Eve and proceed to spend the evening reading. A well-chosen book makes a lasting, thoughtful present. However, choosing books for young people can sometimes feel a bit daunting. That’s where we hope we can help. We read a lot of books and hear a lot of feedback from young readers. So here is our guide to this year’s best books for young minds that you might not have heard of. Happy Jolabokaflod from Exeter School Library!
