Welcome to ARB Books

ARB Books teams up with Renaissance Learning

ARB books is proud to announce that it has become an official partner of Renaissance Learning, makers of the world’s most widely used reading management software – Accelerated Reader (AR).

Already used by over 1 million children of all ages and abilities in thousands of schools across the UK & Ireland, independent studies by the National Literacy Trust (NLT) and Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) show that AR not only improves reading proficiency, but also engenders a love of books in even the most reluctant reader.
At its heart, Accelerated Reader is simple. A child reads a suitably-challenging book, takes an online quiz, and gets instant feedback – which is available to the child, their teacher and even their parents.
“AR works incredibly well at motivating reluctant readers, particularly boys, largely because of the instant feedback on quiz results. This channels a competitive spirit in the right way to make children engage with literature, whilst instilling a love of reading,” said Anthony Wilson, Deputy Head Teacher at Sir Wiliam Burrough Primary School in East London.
Over 28,000 fiction and non-fiction titles from more than 300 publishers and imprints have been quizzed for Accelerated Reader, and schools are able to purchase specially selected packs from ARB books that are labelled with Quiz Numbers, AR Points and Interest Level.
