When will I receive my book?

You will receive your book and activities once a month. You may have to wait a few weeks for your first book after signing up while we process your subscription. 

What age group is Reading Rebels for?

Reading Rebels is for children with a reading age of 4-7 years or 8-10 years. Each group will receive different books and activities, written to handle human rights topics in age-appropriate ways. All children develop and learn at different paces; so the discussion questions, tips for parents and challenge activities are all designed to offer parents and carers flexibility so they can cater to every child – and explore the stories in a way that makes sense for them.

How do you choose the books?

We chose empowering and beautiful books that are truly diverse, so every child has the chance to see themselves in their stories. They celebrate human rights values like truth and fairness, help build empathy and confidence and encourage children to stand up and take action for themselves and others.

What kind of issues do the books cover?

Reading Rebels covers a range of human rights issues in a child-friendly way like refugees, racism, disability, LGBTIQ and women’s rights.

Children with a reading age of 4-7 years old will get books like We're All Wonders by R. J. Palacio and Dare by Lorna Gutierrez. And children with a reading age of 8-10 will get books like The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Raúf and War is Over by David Almond.

Will you provide anything to help us get the most out of each book?

Yes! You get hands on activities from drawing and writing to dressing up and acting that will allow your little rebel to get the most from each book. They are really fun. Plus, each month we will email you a useful guide with tons of tips to bring the books to life.

Can I cancel my subscription?

You can cancel your subscription anytime. Just email 

Where will the money raised by Reading Rebels go?

While your child is enjoying Reading Rebels, your money will be hard at work helping Amnesty International stand up for equality and justice around the world. Your support could help human rights education projects to teach school children about their rights, investigate torture and abuse, or get our voice heard by policy-makers.  

What happens after I get my books?

After your year of books and activities, your monthly gift will continue to help Amnesty International UK protect human rights here in the UK and around the world! You can change or cancel your Direct Debit at any time.
