Frequently Asked Questions

How do you select the books?

We work with trusted book recommendation partners and literacy experts to ensure the books we curate and deliver are not only inclusive and representative but are also curriculum aligned.

What is a library diversity audit?

A diversity audit is an opportunity to examine who is represented in your library collection to make your collection more representative of your school community and the world at large.

Can I choose the frequency of the boxes?

Absolutely, there is no requirement to buy boxes for each month. Choose the months whose themes are relevant to your needs and we will ship the boxes between 12 & 15th of those months. We ask for a minimum of 10 boxes to be ordered for each required month.

How do schools select children to receive Happier Every Chapter boxes?

When we work with partner schools, the key decision makers, usually, the Headteacher, Literacy Lead or Pupil Premium Lead will do the following: Assess and select the children to receive Happier Every Chapter boxes, usually based on their literacy attainment levels. Partner schools can enrol pupils for up to 12 months and choose what themes / months they want to receive boxes for. Happier Every Chapter works as a fantastic targeted intervention for looked after children in schools, virtual schools & pupil referral units. Enrol as few or as many children as require this intervention depending on needs and budgets

How much involvement does the school have in administering the service?

🎁  Address each parcel to the child
🎁 Distribute the parcels each month
🎁 Communicate any changes in recipient cohort
🎁 Manage the expectations of the children who do not receive the boxes

Love from schools like you

Fantastic Book Boxes

Thank you for supporting our school's quest in instilling a love for reading in our most reluctant readers. The children are so excited to receive their book packs each month and enjoy sharing them in school with their friends and with their families at home. Pupils are beginning to build their own libraries at home and positively talk about what they have read!

Our library is transformed!

My advice to schools considering working with Happier Every Chapter is go for it. A great chance to transform the curriculum and the library in the school. Opportunities to inspire everyone, to get reading and reading different texts. Our library is transformed
