Join us between Monday 6 to Sunday 12 July to celebrate the joy of reading!

Every year we are joined by schools, libraries, children and their parents to celebrate books and reading for pleasure.


Join us on Monday to find out which childrens' author will receive Book Trust's first Lifetime Achievement Award.


Our Best Book Guide will also be released on Monday. The best Book Guide celebrates the very best children's books from the past year, and includes books for the very youngest to books for young adults.


There will be lots of fun to follow, including competitions, quizzes, booklists and more!
