kids-readingI know that all you wonderful kids who follow my blog are fantastic readers, and love your books to death! But stop for a minute and think – what would it be like NOT to be able to read? Not just books, but ANYTHING in writing? Why don’t you try and spend the next hour NOT reading any words at all – on your computer screen, your television screen, packets of food in the kitchen, road signs on the street, mail in the post, magazines, advertisements, not to mention your beloved books. And then imagine what that would be like for a lifetime.

That’s what life is like every day for over 60 million primary school aged kids around the world today! Take a look at this clip from Room To Read with Mum and Dad:

and think how incredibly lucky you are to be able to read! Never take that ability for granted!

And then, turn off your computer, pick up a good book and have a wonderful, thrilling, thought- provoking, funny, sad, magical and life-changing READ! That’s an order!
