Join us as we celebrate how reading for pleasure has helped children temporarily forget the Covid-19 pandemic…
When Cressida Cowell, author of the hugely popular How To Train Your Dragon series, was made Children’s Laureate in 2019, she set out her to-do list in the form of a charter. Number one on the list? “Read for the joy of it.”
“I want all children to have the opportunities that I did when I was young,” Cressida explains to Teach Primary. “To have access to a variety of books so they can find something they love,” she continues.
“Research shows that reading for the joy of it has powerful, measurable real-life benefits that can transform lives. No matter who you are, if you read for the joy of it you are more likely to be happier, healthier, more likely to vote and own your own home.”
By listing it at the very top of her charter, Cressida sent out a clear and important message: reading for pleasure is absolutely vital.
It’s fair to say that for children across the United Kingdom, 2020 has been a year like no other.
As well as the numerous benefits we all know reading brings, including language development, confidence and communication skills, reading can also be an important escape for many children.
Join us as we celebrate the work many schools, charities and organisations are doing to keep reading for pleasure alive at a time when it’s more needed than ever…
