Reading at home


The Reading Agency has reported:

  • Studies have shown that those who read for pleasure have higher levels of self-esteem and a greater ability to cope with difficult situations. Reading for pleasure was also associated with better sleeping patterns. 
  • Adults who read for just 30 minutes a week are 20% more likely to report greater life satisfaction. 

In our busy lives, it can be hard to take time out to read but the benefits are great, not just for the children! Even just 10 minutes a day can make a huge difference!
