A new library for Beanstalk, for Giving Tuesday

We asked you to help Beanstalk, the children's reading charity, create a welcoming library.  Giving Tuesday,  28th November, is the perfect day to show you what you gave!

Every person who entered our competition earlier this year helped us donate a Tidy Books product to Beanstalk's library. The library is used by reading volunteers to pick out books they think that children will enjoy. Making the books more accessible is key to helping volunteers find the perfect book to encourage a reluctant reader.

The volunteers love their new book corner, saying: “a vast improvement”; “such a neat, clean design”; “shelves fit so perfectly”; “you could have done with these years ago!”

When we visited the Beanstalk offices earlier in the year, we discovered this treasure trove of kid's books and games. But, it must have been incredibly difficult to find a book at all!
Getting the right book builds rapport with a child who is struggling with their reading.  Beanstalk's reading volunteers go into schools to read one to one with children, and help them  build their love of books.    So finding the right book to engage with every child is very important.

Beanstalk’s reading helpers meet a child once a week, away from the classroom to read or play a game.  For many children this is often the only time during the week when they are given options, asked their opinions, and able to enjoy quality one-to-one time with a consistent adult role model.  Beanstalk's aim is to reach 18,000 children by 2018.

So, we were delighted to help the Beanstalk team create this library to help their reading volunteers.

The Beanstalk team told us
"The units have helped transform our book corner into an attractive, practical space. Being able to see the front-facing books easily draws people in to look at them and brightens the whole area by throwing out more images and colours.

We're proud to have been in partnership with Beanstalk since 2014.  With every product that , we sell online, we donate a portion of that sale to help Beanstalk ensure that every child becomes a reader.

From Beanstalk and from us at Tidy Books: 'Thank you!'
