The Premier’s Reading Challenge (PRC) booklists open doors to a rich collection of children’s literature representing a range of books including fiction, non-fiction, picture books, poetry and drama, and include a wide variety of Australian authors.

Students can read any books, in any format. This includes print, digital, audiobooks and graphic novels. For younger children, a book that is read aloud by an adult counts toward their total.

Stuck on what to read?  Be sure to also check out book reviews from fellow PRC readers.
