 I just wanted to say thank you for the excellent service you have provided over the last few years. Both my daughters have benefitted greatly in terms of their confidence with reading. They have also enjoyed the process of receiving their envelopes in the post, which I think is a lovely thing in our increasingly digital world!

As a primary school teacher with a young daughter I was keen to encourage a love of reading. The variety and ‘freshness’ of Reading Chest books has really helped with this - my 5 year old often has to be told to stop reading so that we can do other things! I love that you can vary book bands so you can try trickier books and pick favourites which you know your child will be interested in (animal stories for us!) The service is excellent and new books always arrive quickly. My daughter loves receiving the envelope addressed to her & posting off the ones she’s read. Such a brilliant idea - thank you.

 I’d like to say thank you so much for the last couple of years. My son has progressed so well using reading chest - not only with reading and comprehension but also general knowledge. My twins start school next year so we will be back!

Our sons have greatly enjoyed receiving the books from you and the service has been a huge benefit for both.  Our 4 year old - summer baby, who has just started school is a fluent reader and I am quite sure your service has contributed to this.  We are however moving abroad and will need to stop.  We thank you for your help and excellent service!

 We have really enjoyed our journey with Reading Chest over the last few months, it really helped my son's reading progress over the summer holidays and into the start of the new term. We will no doubt be back with you next year. Thank you :-)

You provide a fantastic service. Our son's reading has progressed so well as a result of Reading chest and the books are lot more appealing than those from school. Would be good in summer holiday periods if the 6 books limit could be extended to 12 as we read them really quick in holidays. I wish all kids could benefit from your service.
