Books can inspire, uplift and offer escape
Like many children across the world, 12-year-old Pascalia in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley loves escaping into new worlds through books.
Watch her discover Where the Wild Things Are in this short film:
In unprecedented times like this, many of us are rediscovering our favourite stories and enjoying the simple pleasure of escaping into books.
At present, one billion children and young people across the world are unable to go to school or university. Many of them will not have the luxury of books to read at home.
When students return to education, our work will be more vital than ever as they get back to learning.
With your support, we can be there when schools and libraries reopen.
