Children are reading less than ever before

Children are reading less than ever before, research reveals
Just a quarter of under-18s read each day, study shows in run-up to World Book Day


Interesting comment from Michael Rosen '“We have countless examples of research showing that children who read for pleasure widely and often are best able to benefit from what education offers. Berating parents, children or teachers for ‘failing’ will solve nothing. It [improving reading levels] needs full government backing, with as much money and effort as they put into compulsory phonics teaching, to support schools and communities in this.”
