Today I am supporting the , Good Morning Britain, just read campaign:
As part of our Just Read campaign, we’re showing you how important it is to encourage children to read from birth. A figure released to us exclusively from a report out this November by the National Literacy Trust reveals that one in five children aged three to five that read or look at books daily have literacy outcomes above those expected for their age.
The message is to read with your children from birth – just ten minutes a day can make a huge impact. We are supporting everyone to #Take10 minutes and read to your child!
The Good Morning Britain and Sun with One Poll survey found that two thirds of children (63%) would rather play on a computer or tablet than read a book and more than one in ten children do not think that reading well is important for their future (12%).
We’re encouraging you to #Take10 minutes every day and read to your child as part of our Good Morning Britain Just Read literacy campaign.
Good Morning Britain’s Just Read campaign wants to encourage you to remember the importance of literacy to achieve the best for your future.
One in four children at age 11 is leaving primary school not able to read well. It has been predicted that if we don’t act now, there will be a reading crisis by 2025, and a generation will be left behind.
Our exclusive findings with The Sun newspaper have revealed that more than two thirds of children would actually like to read more. And of those, almost three quarters would like to spend more time reading with their Mum or Dad. Our message is to inspire you to read for at least ten minutes a day with your children.
Together, we can make a difference, support the campaign via social media by using #Take10 on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and try to read ten minutes with your children daily.
