Technology Books for Children

Meet the passionate individuals behind, Technology Books for Children.  Our charity started through reflections from our founder and CEO, around children not seeing tech as fun, relevant in and to their daily lives and as topic that could be embraced for pleasure or even as a bed time story.  Hence began, thought around Reading for Pleasure on tech topics.  Additionally, our team has observed the lack of women and those from disadvantaged backgrounds not being strongly represented within the tech industry.  

Our diverse team brings together a wealth of talent, expertise, and dedication to serve you better. As leaders in our respective fields, we are united by a shared commitment to excellence and innovation. Get to know the faces driving our charity forward, each bringing unique skills and perspectives to the table.

Technology Books for Children currently operates across England and Wales. We believe that by raising awareness of tech themed texts, we play a part in addressing the digital divide.
