Book recommendations

Books we love and books we’ve found useful on various aspects of language, literacy, linguistics and teaching. We’re including books for English learners and native speakers, for children, parents, adults and teachers. Most are not new. Most can be picked up second hand for a couple of pounds, some have come to be regarded as modern classics.
