We are hosting a Twitter party! Join us for the chance to win a fantastic prize

Published on: 10 September 2019

As part of Time to Read this year we are hosting a Twitter party to talk about children’s mental health and wellbeing and the connection with reading.

Join us on Twitter by tagging @BookTrust and using #TimetoRead at 8pm - 9pm this Thursday 19th September.

By taking part you will go in the chance to win 5 x £20 Book tokens for Waterstones.

Topics to think about:

  • The connection between children's mental health and reading, for more information see our Time to Read research here.
  • Your own stories of the books you've read with your family to help you through challenging times (eg. divorce, bereavement or school problems)
  • Stories that got you through tough times when you were younger and the lessons you learnt.

See you there!

Time to Read

Time sharing stories is time well spent. We want parents and carers to keep reading to their child, even once they've reached primary school or started to read on their own.

If you read books together, it's a great way to bond, talk about the day, and have a lot of fun!
