Books have the power to transport us to new worlds but, much like breakfasts, not every child has access to them at home.
From 2021-2023, we were delighted to work with Macmillan Children’s Books, enabling them to distribute a quarter of a million books from the Marcus Rashford Book Club to Magic Breakfast partner schools across the country.
Children at our partner schools were able to take home their own copies of ‘A Dinosaur Ate My Sister’ by Pooja Puri, ‘Silas and the Marvellous Misfits’ by Tom Percival, ‘The 13-Storey Treehouse’ by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton, and Alex Falase-Koya and Marcus Rashford’s own books, ‘The Breakfast Club Adventures: The Beast Beyond the Fence’ and ‘The Breakfast Club Adventures – The Ghoul in the School’.
Together, we provided breakfasts that fuel and books that inspire to children across the country.

In the past, BBC Teach, the National Literacy Trust, and Macmillan’s Children’s Books have produced resources to accompany the books. Why not have a looks through and see if they inspire any activity around Marcus’ recommended reads.
