Research has shown that children who have a regular reading routine, reading for pleasure each day are academically stronger than those who don’t. Reading is an essential skill that can boost a child’s achievement in all curriculum areas, not just English and Literacy.

Reading for pleasure can introduce children to new ideas, helping to build their own wider interests, general knowledge and vocabulary.
Reading not only builds academic strengths but allows children to grow socially and emotionally and will enable a child to become successful later in life.
