Choose from top reading schemes used in UK schools such as Oxford Reading Tree, Project X, Collins Big Cat, Rigby Star, Alphakids, Treetops, Pocket Reads and Yellow Door, including both fiction and non-fiction.


Whether your child loves or hates reading, we will make it fun!

Children are involved from the start when they make their book selections, receive their own personalised Reading Chest delivery, give ratings and write reviews. Not to mention the reward stickers and certificates!


All parents want to be involved in their child’s reading, but it can be hard to get the right books.

Reading Chest will provide you with a constant supply of great books, perfectly suited to your child’s reading ability, bridging the gap between home and school.

After reading your rental books, simply return them in the pre-paid envelope and wait for some more to drop through your letterbox. What could be easier?
