Your stories and testimonials

Each year we reach millions of children and families, inspiring them with our books, resources and support to get them started on their reading journeys.

Reading matters because it can have a lifelong positive impact on a child, affecting their health, wellbeing and development.

Here we've gathered stories from families and practitioners about how our work has made a difference to parents, carers and children.
