The Gift of Reading in 2011: Children and young people’s access to books and attitudes towards reading

Added 12 May 2011

Read about book ownership in 2010, with 1 in 3 children and young people saying that they don’t have a book of their own at home.  


In addition to children’s ownership of books in 2010, this report also explores access to reading materials, frequency of reading and attitudes to reading. We also consider how these factors could all affect children and young people’s reading abilities.


Overall, 18,141 pupils from 111 schools participated in our online survey that we conducted in November/December 2010.
