Dymocks Children’s Charities purpose is to change kids’ lives, one book at a time.
Here is how one book (that many of you will be familiar with) helped to do that, straight from the mouth of a teacher at one of our Book Bank schools:
“Last week I was teaching a student using the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar (provided by Dymocks Children's Charities). Half way through the book the student looked at me and said "I'm reading. I didn't know I could read such a hard book". It was a momentous occasion for this child who has struggled reading and is finally developing the confidence and understanding that they can succeed. This was really a WOW moment for me and will probably change the trajectory of this child's life.”
In 2016, Dymocks Children’s Charities supplied 22,830 books to 13,814 children in 87 locations across Australia. That’s nearly 14,000 kids getting access to books they wouldn’t have seen otherwise. That’s nearly 14,000 opportunities to change a life.
