Reading is my life just as much as writing. I wade through words every day and then relax with more of them at night. Reading is also an expression of love that takes me back to turning pages with my grandma. Through Oscar’s Book Prize we want to encourage every parent, grandparent and carer to find the time for that same shared experience.

Help a child to read – volunteer today

We urgently need people with a passion for reading to join our volunteer team and support the number of families we have on our books waiting to be paired with a Reading Volunteer.
