Supporting reading for pleasure for children everywhere

We know that reading for pleasure is the biggest indicator of a child's future success, and has a far-reaching impact on wellbeing. That's why we celebrate books and reading for children through our charity partnerships, as well as through our year-round calendar of fun competitions, reading recommendations and quizzes.
