Our Gift-a-Book card buys books for children who have none.

How does it work?

Lion reading

We ask you to donate £10 for each Gift-a-Book Card. You have four beautiful Quentin Blake designs to choose from.

Your cards will be sent to you by Royal Mail (UK addresses only please). You fill out your personal message on the Gift-a-Book card and send it to its lucky recipient.

Every £10 donation is used to buy new books chosen by our expert literacy team for children in Zambia.

Child reading and walking

These fabulous books become part of the Book Bus mobile library service or are donated to schools and community libraries every year.

Children reading

Each book is enjoyed and read by many children.
