ALL ABOUT US

We believe that everyone can learn to love reading! If you’re not so sure, then maybe one of our young reviewers can inspire you!   If you already love books, then perhaps you’ll find something new to interest you here.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT OUR MISSION...

We have designed our subscription book boxes to help nurture a love of reading and to encourage inquiring minds to develop creative, writing and artistic skills. With a monthly delivery from A Pocketful of Books, kids can discover fantastic literature from different genres and deepen their understanding with a range of fun activities. And they can have their own review of the book published right here on our website! It’s important that kids reflect upon the books they have read. Here at A Pocketful of Books they can share their thoughts and their love of reading. 

And who are we? A Pocketful of Books is a small family run initiative, and our book boxes are lovingly curated by educational professionals who are experienced in working with young children, and who also happen to be parents!

There are so many amazing children’s books to choose from. If kids review books that they have read for their peers then it helps them to choose the right book for them. We believe that reading for pleasure helps children to reach their unique full potential. Research repeatedly shows that that children who enjoy reading have a much easier time understanding and learning other academic subjects.  A Pocketful of Books is designed to help kids discover the best books for them, to nurture a sense of enquiry, and to share what they learn with others.

Talking to children about what they read and what they think about it is also crucial. Again, research tells us that children who write about what they read tend to become better writers and readers. Their comprehension goes up, and that skill will be applied to all academic subjects. Throughout civilization, reflection has been the foundation for further progress. The important process of reflection defines how to move on, and how to learn from what has been created. This is a vital process that underpins the learning. That’s why our subscription book boxes come with a range of tailored activity sheets designed to get kids thinking and writing about the book they have just read. 


“Reading without reflecting is like eating without digesting.” – Edmund Burke
