Welcome to Builder Book, the creative arm of Split Perspectivz CIC which was set up by authors Jude Lennon and Natalie Reeves Billing in 2020. Their aim was to put creative and interactive literacy boxes into the hands of children and families which would encourage reading, writing and speaking and listening skills.  The boxes actively encourage family time spent together. 


To date, with the aid of a fantastic creative team, around 25,000 boxes or packs have been designed, created, assembled and delivered across the Liverpool City Region. Each year the boxes or packs have focused on a different theme including creativity, mental health, Eurovision and currently sustainability. 


As well as boxes and packs, Builder Book have also delivered interactive den building workshops to thousands of children in schools, at holiday play schemes and for community events. The workshops promote and encourage team work, problem solving, communication, creativity, role play, literacy and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths). 


In 2020, the National Literacy Trust published a review.

It looked at the impact of Covid-19 on family wellbeing

and the home environment.

The key findings were:

  • Children from disadvantaged backgrounds are more likely to fall behind when home learning.        

  • COVID-19 has exacerbated parental depression. Those with fewer resources have been disproportionately affected.                                 

  • Encouraging parents to engage with their child’s learning is key to boosting language skills.  

  • Successful initiatives focus on developing warm, positive relationships at home.

We work closely with Merseyside businesses, Councils and voluntary organisations. We identify families with young children, in primary schools. The families receive a beautifully crafted Builder Book Tool Box and can opt to join our list for future themed boxes.

With Builder Book, children learn through imaginative play. They read, draw, build, sketch, talk and laugh.


Builder Book promotes family time and togetherness, and encourages discussion. It helps children form a positive attachment to learning, and therefore, a sense of balance and well-being.

Builder Book supports and promotes local creatives who in turn inspire future generations of creatives.


With the power of communities we can reach more families, and show them we care.
