Time To Read

Time sharing stories is time well spent. Can you find the Time to Read?

We're encouraging families to spend just 10 minutes a day sharing books together, as research shows that reading for pleasure has huge benefits for children. Not only that, but we're giving away a copy of The Bumblebear to every reception-age child in England.
