Children‚Äôs books have extraordinary power to speak to all of us. We read children‚Äôs books to find out who we are. They offer a safe place to understand the world around us; to be amazed, scared, curious, reassured. The best books shape our ideas and stay in our memories for the rest of our lives.

British children‚Äôs books are the envy of the world. Until recently this rich heritage was neglected - there was no national treasury of children‚Äôs literature to celebrate the contribution that children‚Äôs books and their creators bring to childhood. Seven Stories has changed this. Seven Stories is caring for a growing collection of artwork and manuscripts by some of Britain‚Äôs best writers and illustrators for children. We urgently need funds to safeguard and extend our collection.
Seven Stories is launching a 5th Birthday Appeal to provide essential funds for the acquisition of outstanding material for the collection and for associated conservation, framing, display, research and interpretation costs. This fund is fundamental if the collection is to continue to evolve; chronicling the development of children‚Äôs literature and bringing it to life in lively exhibitions, events and learning activities that encourage young people to make books part of their lives.
