How schools use our gift cards

National Book Tokens have been inspiring booklovers since 1932, and were the first voucher of their kind in the UK. They can be spent in thousands of bookshops everywhere and online. They are exclusively for books, and help to encourage reading for pleasure — which studies show doesn't just have an impact on academic achievement but has a positive effect on wellbeing too.
