One of the best things about reading books is sharing and talking about them with family and friends – and if you have a family member or friend in the Armed Forces then Reading Force is for you! Whether your loved ones are at home or away, all can get involved. So join the fun and sign up to receive your free book and special scrapbook. It’s free and easy – and brings families and friends closer together.
Pre-schools, schools, community groups, HIVEs, Welfare Units, and other organisations can join the fun. Get involved and encourage Service children and families to do Reading Force. Find out how you can receive a free resources pack and set up Reading Force in your setting or group.
