Reading for pleasure from a young age is vital to cognitive development — it’s a more powerful factor in life achievement than socio-economic background.

The sole aim of Acorn Book Club is to get high quality books into the hands of children who can benefit from them the most. We take books and money donated by the public, combined with funds from selected CSR partners, and turn these into tangible projects within local schools that make a real difference.
