Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income. We want to see more children develop a life-long habit of reading for pleasure and the improved life chances that this brings them.
World Book Day was created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995 as a worldwide celebration of books and reading. It is marked in over 100 countries around the globe.
Spending just 10 minutes a day reading and sharing stories with children can make a crucial difference to their future success, and it’s fun for all involved.
