Children's Reading Fund, Change The Story


A 60-second film to mark the launch of new Book Trust charity, The Children's Reading Fund. Illiteracy in young children is a bigger problem in the UK than a lot of people imagine and the aim of the film was bring to light the subtle ways that we all take books for granted.
