Lunchboox Clubs promote and stimulate children’s enjoyment of reading in a safe, fun and informal environment.

These clubs encourage children to read regularly, to explore books outside their comfort zone – new authors, different genres – and to develop confidence in talking about books. Lunchboox is open to children of all reading abilities.

Lunchboox has Michael Rosen as its Patron, and at the heart of the project is the desire to help schools to become, or further establish themselves, as ‘book-loving schools’.
