“Thank you so much for the lovely books. I’m reading one at the moment”

Published on: 01 November 2023

Because of you, thousands of children finally have a book to call their own. But it is so much more than a book. It made sure children felt special. It made sure they had at least one present under the tree. And it’s a gift that will last long after Christmas.

Here’s what some of the children who received parcels in 2023 had to say about their books: 

“Thank you for the books you got me”

“I love it! Thank you lots of amazing fun facts”

“Hello, I'm 8 years old and this is the best book in the world it has lots of detail and negative storys and positive storys and it is very interesting thank you.”

“I'm your best fan!”


“I love the books from BookTrust keep doing your best and don't give up” 

“I liked it it’s helping me learn”

“Hello BookTrust! I'm a girl that is 10 years old. I already love reading books! (it's literally my favourite hobby!) I got the book called Weird but True 2024 I love to read it thank you."


“I loved the book thank you”

“Good because there is lots on information about bugs.”

“I love all of your books. I am always excited to open the parcels. Thank you”
