The  Winter Reading Challenge - is about getting children to read for pleasure.   There are lots of reasons why reading for pleasure is a good thing:

  • reading for fun improves literacy
  • getting children to love reading can help their well-being later in life
  • reading for pleasure helps children succeed at school
  • those who read for pleasure have more empathy, greater self-esteem and are better able to cope with difficult situations in life
