Big Book Wrap

Why partner with us?

By providing books for the home, to preschool children in the marginalised community of Lavender Hill, you are investing in helping children thrive academically and socially, and develop positive habits of mind.

Research shows that having books at home has major academic and social benefits on young children from birth. It’s the single biggest indicator of academic  success, more so than socio economic status.

Access to books positively impacts on the reading achievement of economically disadvantaged children.

Children who own a book are 15 times more likely to read above the level expected for their age.

What we have achieved

7080 new books distributed to date

There's a Lion in my Tummy - Book

When I have BIG FEELINGS that I don’t understand, it feels like a lion walking all over my insides!

Everything feels wobbly. 

Every child should know love and belonging and have a special bond with a caring adult.
