Pledge a Book

Bags of Books are working with UK charity ‘Pledge a book’, who distribute books to those children who live in households with few or zero books in the home.

We feel that it should be every child’s right to have access to good quality books at home, unfortunately a report in 2011 by the National Literacy Trust ( shows that nearly 4 million children do not own a single book and this number is rising quite dramatically. On this page you will find resources, showing the importance of reading and its affect on a child.

Please read all the details of Pledge a Book’s wonderful project, how you can donate a book and request a donation at

One way that you can help is to purchase a book from one of the wishlists below. This book order will be handled by us and will help to bring a book, a smile and a whole new world to a deserving child in the UK.
