The Children's Book ProjectChildren's Book Project

Did you know that one in four disadvantaged children across the UK has fewer than ten books of their own at home? And one in eight has none. The Children’s Book Project is a national charity on a mission to tackle book poverty. We believe that every child should have the chance to own their own book, and to help make this happen put on special book gifting events using books donated by families across the UK.

If your bookshelves are bursting, or you've books that you've read and have grown out of, the Children's Book Project would love to find them a new home. We take donations of pre-loved books and gift them to children with very few books of their own. Imagine whose bookshelves your books might end up on next and, if they could talk, the stories they would tell!

National Book Tokens NBT

National Book Tokens have been connecting books with readers since 1932. Sold and accepted in hundreds of bookshops across the UK and Ireland, when people give one of our gift cards they are giving not just a book, but the experience of discovering it for themselves. We know this is particularly important for younger readers, as research shows that children are significantly more likely to enjoy a book if they find it on their own – and reading for pleasure has been proven to have a positive effect not just on children’s learning and development, but on their wellbeing too. 

National Book Tokens want everyone to have access to books if they want them, and we work through sponsorship and our partners to get closer to that goal every day. We’ve been proud to sponsor World Book Day for nearly 25 years, giving every child in the country a chance to read – and we also support the work of other literacy charities like Read for Good and Book Aid International. 

In case you can’t tell, we’re passionate about books and reading, and we know that local bookshops are the best-placed to get books into their local communities, as well as being a crucial component of a thriving local economy. National Book Tokens can only be spent in bookshops, empowering people to spend locally when they’re indulging their love of reading, and making sure those shops – and the book-loving superheroes who work in them – are around for generations of booklovers to come.

BookTrust

BookTrust is here to get every child reading – regularly and by choice. Because reading can bring children life-changing benefits.Book Trust

We’re the UK’s largest children’s reading charity, with decades of experience in selecting high quality, diverse and inclusive books and designing resources that inspire children and families to read. We want every child to have the best start in life that reading brings. We reach every child in their first year of life and provide support throughout their early years, as children learn to read independently, all the way to secondary school. We work in partnership with every local authority in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and with a network of professionals in children’s centres, nurseries, schools, libraries and health visiting teams. Some children need us more than others. So, we offer more support to those facing the biggest barriers in life – whether that’s families on lower incomes or looked-after children.

We know that families sometimes need inspiration and advice, and so our website is packed full of book reviews, stories, read-along videos, rhymes and activities for all ages, to get children excited about reading. Visit www.booktrust.org.uk or follow us @booktrust.
