Reading really can change lives
BookTrust provides books, guidance and resources to families to ensure that all children have access to stories in their home and develop a reading habit. This task is more important than ever with more children at risk of falling further behind and needing extra support, following the disruptions that families have faced over the past year.
With your help, we can continue our vital work and help these children experience the joy and wonder of stories. By making a regular donation, you will become a BookTrust Friend. BookTrust Friends are very special people – people who believe that reading really can change a child’s life. People who know that children who read for pleasure are likely to be happier, do better at school and be more emotionally prepared for life.
