Supporting parents to help children with reading.
The Book Activist promotes and supports children and young people's reading through schools, the local community and at home, throughout the South East. The benefits and importance of reading have never been more evident. The Book Activist inspires children to encourage their development as independent and confident readers, who love reading for pleasure.
"The Book Activist's passion for books instils in children a delightful and enthusiastic love of reading."
Adam Stower, author & illustrator
