Christmas Appeal

Everyone has a story to tell. Give the gift of reading and help a child discover theirs this Christmas.

Reading has the power to change lives.

We know that it improves literacy, builds vocabulary and develops children's empathy and imagination. But the benefits of reading in childhood go so much further than that.

Above all, reading sparks imagination and brings joy.

By supporting Children’s Books Ireland this Christmas, you are giving the gift of reading to disadvantaged children who may never otherwise own a book.

You are giving the gift of reading to children who have experienced war and are celebrating Christmas very far from home. Not only this, but you are also giving the gift of connection, warmth, and wellbeing.

Thank you.
