A LEADER’S GUIDE


Reading for pleasure what the research says
Reading for Pleasure—what the research says

  • The percentage of 17-year-olds who read nothing at all for pleasure has doubled over a 20 year period.

  • Families are spending less money on books than at any other time in the last two decades.

  • A noticeable gap exists in reading levels between males and females.


Phs book clubs

  • Reading comprehension skills are declining.

  • Reading for pleasure correlates strongly with academic achievement.

  • Children and teenagers who read for pleasure on a daily or weekly basis score better on reading tests than infrequent readers.


Phs book clubs

Research from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

(OECD, 2002) showed that

reading enjoyment is more important for children’s

educational success than their family’s socio-economic status.
