This year, VIP Reading and O’s Refugee Aid Team are collaborating to bring Refugee Week to life. Our hashtag ‘Spread Hope’ recognises the difficulties faced by refugees in the world today. Inspiring children to engage with this theme is key.

These #SpreadHope book boxes have been carefully designed by a team of educators, authors and illustrators. We hope these boxes will inspire new discussions, new questions, new insight into the plight of refugee from all walks of life, through a love of reading.

These boxes will feature more goodies than any previous box, thanks to the wonderful sponsors of this event: Learning by Questions, Cosy Direct, Old Barn Books, WRD Magazine, Nosy Crow, Lantana Publishing and Barrington Stoke.
