BookTrust transforms lives by getting children and families reading
BookTrust is the UK's largest children's reading charity. Each year we reach 3.4 million children across the UK with books, resources and support.What we do
New books we love
We review lots of new books every month, and here's where you can find the ones we liked best of all.
Search our booklists
Looking for the best book for an older child? Take a look at our booklists. We may well have the answer - just see for yourself.
Use the Bookfinder to find the perfect book for you, your family and friends.
Here's how we can help you
See our favourite handwritten postcards from children who receive The Letterbox Club: inspiring a love of reading in children who are looked after.
Participating Year 7 and 8 students can choose a book to keep from 17 titles, selected by experts.
Former School Librarian of the Year Lucas Maxwell shares another exciting idea for helping students to read and love books.
A big thank you to everyone who donated to the BookTrust Christmas appeal. With your amazing support, we have reached over 11,500 children who are vulnerable or in care with a festive book parcel, and made them feel special this Christmas.
