Join our reading adventures!

Read for Good motivates children to read for fun because we know that loving reading changes lives.

Our regular supply of beautiful, brand-new books and visits from professional storytellers, offer children in hospitals, schools and other settings, the chance to escape to other worlds in their imagination. Find out more here.

Children in schools are motivated to read using our free Readathon kits, which encourage them to choose whatever they like to read – from comics to classics, and audio books to blogs – all whilst raising money to get books to children in hospital, and books for their school. We have a Kids Page plus inspiring ideas and reviews of books we love to encourage children to read for pleasure at home and in school and our new Track My Read® tool to engage pupils in reading for pleasure wherever they are, providing rich insights for teachers and librarians at the same time.
