Join Letterbox Club 2024 

Tried and trusted by thousands of children   

As one of the flagship programmes at BookTrust, Letterbox Club has, for over 20 years, continued to be enjoyed by thousands of children along with their parents, carers and teachers to get children reading wherever they are.    

It gets children reading more...

...In fact, 68% of Letterbox Club children say they have been reading more on their own since receiving their parcels.    

We know through our research that the Letterbox Club has a positive impact on reading habits. With a wide range of fiction, non-fiction, novelty books and accessible maths games, there is something to spark the interest of all children to read more, and build up those essential reading miles that we know have such an impact on reading fluency.   

Strengthens parental engagement   

Letterbox Club parcels can be taken home by children to encourage and support the home-school link, with books, stories and numeracy games to share and enjoy with their trusted adults along with guidance on how to make the most of the resources.  

Develops social and emotional wellbeing  

With resources thoughtfully chosen for children with vulnerabilities, Letterbox Club brings a sense of belonging and excitement to children who may not have experienced books of their own before.   

Can be used flexibly to suit the needs of your children  

You know your children the best, which is why we’ve designed Letterbox Club as a series of parcels to be used as a resource that fits with your pupil premium strategy and that provides ongoing engagement for your children.
