TJ Book Wishlist


Make someone’s day and surprise them in school with a new book!


Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, friend, TJ Alumni or you just ended up here by accident, you can spread a little magic by donating a book to a child in school.


Using our wishlist, look through the comments by the children and choose the book you’d like to buy, either directly via Amazon or from your local bookstore. 


When it arrives in school it will be delivered directly to the child in their classroom along with your message (if included). They will then get the first read of their lovely new book and add it to our school library for many others to enjoy.


Whether you want to surprise someone you know, make a donation to school or just do a spontaneous act of kindness, the TJ Book Wishlist is a great way to do it. Got £5 to spare on an Amazon voucher? What better thing could you do than buying a child a new book  Please click below to view the list:

Thomas Jolyffe Primary School believes EVERY child should have access to a bookshelf in their bedroom, with a selection of books they can read, share, read, change and read again. 


If you already have a bookshelf with children’s books at home, snap a quick picture and send it into school for our TJ Bookshelfie Month. Alternatively, email it directly to or tweet to @TJPrimary with the hashtag #TJBookshelfie


School benefits from the Own Books scheme: a charity organisation aimed at proving books for all children to take home, read and swap. Every single child in school is able to use these books so we recommend coming and having a browse at the shelves marked ‘Own Books’ in our library areas.


If you don’t have a bookshelf - do not fear, we will happily fund a shelf for you to put up in your child's bedroom


Your photo must show you, your bookshelf and a selection of children’s books! We can’t wait to see what fantastic #BookShelfies there are out there.
