Over the last 20 years, a large number of bookgifting programmes have been introduced worldwide to promote reading through the distribution of free books to children and their families.

This review, commissioned by Booktrust, is concerned with bookgifting programmes designed for families with children aged 0-5, particularly those that distribute books directly to babies and young children alongside guidance for parents. It aimed to inform the development of their bookgifting programmes and to establish the evidence base for their work in this area.
