Read On. Get On. Let's Get Every Child Reading by 11

I was just browsing across the internet when I came across this campaign and it is something I feel very strongly about. It shocks me that up to 40% of children enter secondary school without being able to read well. An inability to read well can definitely hinder children in later life and we need to help our nations children - whether it is helping them to read to prepare them for the working world or whether it is to introduce them to a whole new world of characters in some amazing books.

So how can you help? First of all, please do think about signing the petition here. Make our political leaders stand up and take notice of a growing problem in our education system. For more ways to help, please check out the website here.

  1. This is a fabulous campaign Bex. I can't believe that 40% of children can't read properly before they attend secondary school.
