BookTrust transforms lives by getting children and families reading
BookTrust is the largest reading charity in the UK. We work to inspire a love of reading in children because we know that reading can transform lives.
We give out over two million carefully chosen books to children throughout the UK. Every family receives a BookTrust book in their baby's first year.
Our books and resources are delivered via health, library, schools and early years practitioners, and are supported with guidance to encourage the reading habit. Reading for pleasure has a dramatic impact on educational outcomes, well-being and social mobility, and is also a huge pleasure in itself. We are committed to starting children on their reading journey and supporting them throughout.
