Daily Reading

  • “average minutes per day reading books was the best predictor of reading comprehension, vocabulary size and gains in reading achievement between the second and fifth grades.” (Becoming a Nation of Readers, U.S. Department of Education Commission on Reading, 1988)

  • “At all three grades (fourth, eighth, and twelfth) in 1998, students who reported talking about their reading activities with family or friends once or twice a week, or at least monthly, had higher average reading scores than students who reported doing so rarely or never.” (1998 Reading Report Card, NAEP, U.S. Department of Education, 1999)

  • “Research shows that the amount of leisure time spent reading is directly related to children’s reading comprehension, the size of their vocabularies and the gains in their reading ability.” (What Works: Research About Teaching and Learning, William John Bennett and Dana B. Ciccone, 1996)
