"You’ve given me the best book ever, I love it so much!” Read what children thought of their special Christmas book parcels
Published on: 01 November 2023
Every Christmas, with your help we send special book parcels out to children who need them most - and we love reading the postcards they send us about the books they've received!
We know the magic a bedtime story can have – and helping children develop a love of reading at an early age can greatly improve their overall wellbeing later in life, too.
Yet for too many children, books are a luxury their family can’t afford. They may never have had a book to call their own. But you could change this.
Here’s what some of the children who received parcels in 2022 had to say about their books:
"Thank you so much. I feel very happy"
“Thank you for the book. I love it and finding the whys about my questions.”
“You have given me the best book ever. I love it so much!”
“What I think of BookTrust is it is fabulous and I really enjoy the books and am looking forward to more in the future. I like what you send us other than books, colours and games. Thanks BookTrust” -
“I am very happy about having a book on history. It can help me learn more things that happened in the past.”
“Hi, I like reading the books you send me. My favorite is the comic style. I love when I get them. Then I read before I go to bedbye.”
“Thank you for my book about animals. I love it. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Your friend L”.
“I really enjoy reading my books.”
“I felt happy about receiving my parcel. I love it very much”
"I enjoy my books so much. Thanks for sending them"
“I like my post. I don’t get much post. I like reading a lot.”
“I was very excited to get my Roald Dahl book. I really do like reading his books, they are so funny. Thank you.”
Help more children wake up to the magic of books this Christmas.
This year we hope to deliver 17,000 festive book parcels, reaching more children than ever before. But we can’t do it without you. Will you help?
