Too many children aren't reaching their full potential, simply because they don't have books at home. It's a tragedy, but one we are fighting to resolve.
At Rocket Ahead we are working with schools and publishers to provide access to non-fiction books that don’t just educate children, but fire imaginations and light the spark of ambition.
There’s more to reading than fiction. Sometimes, it’s about seeing how exciting reality can be and what’s truly possible.
There’s a lot of inequality in the UK, and it oftenstarts with education. So, we’re doing everything we can to help the childrenwho are missing out.
How? By providing free, highly illustrated, and engaging non-fiction books to the schools that need them most.
The books are chosen because they engage pupils whilst fitting into the national curriculum which supports teachers in their lesson planning. We believe these books will inspire children to discover more about the world, and see real potential in themselves.
Research indicates that children who are not meeting academic expectations at the age of 7 are more likely to continue to struggle at age 16. It is essential to provide early intervention and support to prevent them from falling behind and becoming disenfranchised with the education system. Together, we can break the cycle of academic struggles and empower children to pursue their aspirations with confidence and determination..
Some of the most exciting children's books are illustrated non-fiction. From 2023, we'll be recognising the creators with the Rocket Ahead Award.GET IN TOUCH
