I’m a BookTrust Friend because I want more children to experience the benefits of reading.

Reading really can change lives

BookTrust supports over 2.5 million families to read with their children with our books, guidance and resources. With your help we can continue our vital work and ensure that every child, regardless of their background can experience the joy and wonder of stories.

BookTrust Friends are very special people - people who believe that reading really can change a child's life. People who know that children who read for pleasure are likely to be happier, do better at school and be more emotionally prepared for life. With your help we can continue our vital work and reach even more children and families.
