Kids and Reading

Barb at Multitype Librarian (aka Cool Boss) has a blog post on a recent report that gives a picture of what influences kids to read. A few findings:

  • Kids who are low frequency readers are more inclined to rely on their teachers, friends, librarians and television to help them find books to read than on their parents.
  • Kids report that the number one reason they do not read more is that they cannot find books they like.

There are some significant implications for libraries in all this, so I encourage you to read the whole thing.
