Reading is for everyone

For decades, Read for Good has been providing educators and professionals working with children with fun, rewarding, pragmatic, evidence-based, freely accessible tools, interventions and activities to encourage reading for pleasure.

Alongside our flagship programmes providing books to children in hospital and Readathon sponsored read, we have a range of other ways to help children develop a love of reading:

Storytelling Training
During lockdown, when our storytellers couldn’t go into hospitals, Read for Good developed a 30 minute, free, pragmatic training programme teaching the secrets of storytelling. Useful for anyone working with children (whether in hospital or not), the training will help you to create an easy rapport with children.
Hospital Outreach case study
To extend our work in hospitals, we wanted to support the Hospital Outreach service, educating children who are not well enough to attend school. Find out how they used Track My Read and our Brilliant Box of Books programme to unite their pupil community in a fun, purposeful reading activity.
Stories in Schools case study
In 2019, we ran an intensive reading intervention with schools, with the aim of transforming attitudes to reading among those children already defined, by others or themselves, as ‘non-readers’. Find out more about the pilot and its results, independently evaluated by the National Literacy Trust.
