When did you last see kids talking about a book? When did you last see kids talking about a book? Where characters build character

BCiS is a charity that delivers interactive, inclusive and lively book clubs.

The charity creates a pathway for young people to discover the wider world through reading for pleasure and discussion. Our book clubs help pupils develop character, communication, social and leadership skills. These skills will help young people to do well in school and match the needs of employers, moreover the book clubs demonstrate how reading for pleasure provides an escape from everyday concerns.

In the book clubs, young people:

  • read a book for fun
  • discuss topics that relate to them
  • mix with others from different backgrounds, abilities and age groups
  • communicate face-to-face
  • learn to respect different opinions
  • think creatively

Watch a book club in action

The year 10s are developing resilience and perseverance.

They have coped well with the responsibility of being prepared for book club and setting a good example to the younger students.

Amy Smith, Librarian

The habits of informed criticism and respectful debate are practised during book club, these are cross curricular life skills. I have observed the accelerated progress in the work of the pupils who participated in English.

Dom Jones, English teacher

The format gets children to reflect on a text, to consider the views of other group members and to develop more objective and analytical thinking in a fun and engaging way.
