Today is Read a Book Day. We believe that every day should be Read a Book Day but any excuse to grab a book and read is good enough for us! Whether it’s an old favourite that is as comforting as a soft blanket or a new one ready for you to explore and fall in love with, make some time for it today.
Don’t keep it to yourself though, make sure that you share the experience of reading. Read aloud to your family, friends, pets or toys – no one should be left out of the excitement of reading a good book.
Books are vital for our development as learners and as people, they help to improve our memory and concentration; as well as being a tool for education, entertainment and discovery purposes.
