In association with
Whether you have an avid young booklover at home, or a new reader who’s just starting to gain confidence, the best way to encourage a lifelong reading habit is to give them choice. Reading for pleasure isn’t just fun; it’s proven to have benefits for children’s wellbeing and academic outcomes, and children are much more likely to enjoy the books they’ve chosen themselves.
A simple way to give them choice is with a Bookily card from National Book Tokens. Bookily gives readers money to spend on books each month – a little like a gift subscription service, but one where they get to choose what they receive.
As Bookily is powered by National Book Tokens, it can be used at big high street retailers like Waterstones and WHSmith, as well as at hundreds of local independent bookshops and online. Recipients can convert their Bookily card into an e-Gift card to save to their phones, and manage their card using a simple and secure online dashboard which also gives them monthly book recommendations.
With a Bookily card, children are not only empowered to choose the books they want, when they want them; they also learn how to budget, and to enjoy the independence of spending their card. Just choose how much you want to give them – starting at £5 per month – and for how long, and open up a world of discovery and enjoyment!
