We're a small book-gifting and literacy charity for under-5s in the Canterbury and Midland Road areas of Bradford.

Under-5s receive a free, age-appropriate book through the post every month from birth until their 5th birthday. They build up their own 'library' of quality books at home.

This cost-effective scheme aims to improve literacy and life chances, and enhance parent/child bonding.

We do this by affiliating to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. Canterbury Imagine also works with children's centres and others to encourage literacy activities and support parents and carers with reading with their children.

Support our work with a £5 donation by texting IMAGINE to 70085.

Texts cost £5 plus one standard rate message.

It only costs £25 a year per child to receive 12 free books.
