We are thrilled to have been able to support the important work of the National Literacy Trust with the donation of ‘A River of Stories’ anthologies and key resource downloads. This donation will enable pupils from the ages of 9 to 13 to develop their individual skills in the use of imagination, critical thinking and understanding of cultural diversity.
The beautifully illustrated poems and stories have been compiled from each of the 53 Commonwealth countries and focus on the four elements that we all need to sustain our precious planet – earth, wind, air and fire. It is a compilation of great stories that will capture the interest of any reader. At a deeper level, the series embodies global diversity and at the same time carries the theme of commonality through the four elements that sustain and intrinsically connect cultures and people across the globe.

About the National Literacy Trust
The National Literacy Trust work to improve the reading, writing, speaking and listening skills within communities that suffer most with poverty (where sadly, one in three people have literacy problems).
Because low literacy is intergenerational, work is focussed on families, young people and children.
