How to get your child reading for pleasure

Reading for pleasure

In recent years increasing levels of sophistication in technology have transformed the media landscape and family life.

Families lead ever more busy lifestyles and the role of reading in children’s lives now competes with screen time and digital entertainment.

Recent surveys show a decline in reading as an activity and children are seemingly less engaged than ever before. For families this presents a real challenge – how do you bring up a child who loves to read for pleasure? There is no simple solution to this challenge; ultimately, if we want to raise a child who loves to read, we need to get involved.

We’ve teamed up with Alison David, Consumer Insight Director at children’s book and magazine publisher, Egmont; home to some of the world’s best-loved characters.

Alison’s recently published book “Help Your Child Love Reading” is a fusion of her own experiences as a mum and insights from Egmont’s research programme. The result is an accessible self-help book, full of practical advice for parents to help children find pleasure and fun in reading.
