A love of books changes lives. Children who read for pleasure are likely to do better at school, as well as be more socially, culturally and emotionally prepared for life.
In fact, reading enjoyment is more important for a child's educational success than their family's financial or social status. There are lots of ways that you can help BookTrust change lives by getting children and families reading.

Help us make a difference to children throughout the UK. We can all do a bit more when we're supported by our Friends.
Your kind donations help us continue our vital work getting children and families reading.
Fundraising can be a great way to get your friends together and have fun, while doing something amazing for a cause you love.
We work with partners that share our values to deliver a wide range of business objectives, while raising funds to help get children reading.
Our commitment to you is to ensure exceptional standards of care for all of our supporters at all times - it is the least you can expect for your generosity.
With your amazing support, we have sent 9,700 children in care a special festive book gift and helped to light up their Christmas. The appeal is now closed but you can still help us get books to more children in 2018.
