Dymocks Children’s Charities recognises that reading is an essential tool for life and has developed unique literacy support programs that encourage students to cultivate a love for books and read every day “just because they want to”. Quite simply it’s about getting great books into their hands!

More than any other skill, the ability to read is fundamental to successfully navigating the school curriculum. Moreover, it is central to shaping each individual’s trajectory through life, his or her economic wellbeing, and the ability to actively and fully participate in broader society.
