Love2read – The Reading Hour 2013

Love2read is a collaborative project joining public libraries, government, community groups, media and commercial partners, and of course the public.

In 2012 Love2read ran The Reading Hour. They are doing it again in 2013. Sharing a book with your child for 10 minutes a day, and hour a week is the aim of The Reading Hour on 24 August 2013. Love2read knows it’s not always possible to read to your child every night so have designed an official celebration of reading, in the form of The Reading Hour to highlight the need to read to children so they have the best chance of becoming a good reader, with all the social and educational benefits that that brings. The hour runs from 6 – 7pm.

For resources, including promotional packs and merchandise, head to their website to check out what they have on offer. Book Links supports any and every project that encourages a love of reading in children.

    It’s on the calendar!! I read to my miss everyday if I can. She still enjoys that more than reading to self at the moment. But that’s ok. Nice to keep sharing the love.
