Reading for pleasure is more important to children's successes than education or social class. Chatterbooks reading clubs help children build a lifelong reading habit. Because everything changes when we read.
Chatterbooks works for children aged 4 to 14, with clubs running all over the country in libraries, schools and wherever people want to set them up.
Chatterbooks clubs are where children have a really good time talking about books.

'I've always been a total bookworm and practically lived in my local library when I was a child. I wish I'd been able to join a Chatterbooks reading club then. It would have been such fun to make new friends and discuss all our favourite books. Lots of members write to me and send me their stories and drawings and book reviews - they obviously love being part of a Chatterbooks club.'
