Reading in Liverpool Schools Evaluation: Reading is relaxing

At The Reader Organisation, we’re keen to point out that reading offers much more than a pleasant diversion for a couple of hours at a time; in particular we believe that shared reading and reading aloud has significant benefits to health and wellbeing, especially helping to relieve stress, anxiety and tension.

Our recent evaluation of reading sessions in Liverpool schools has revealed that 80% of children questioned agreed that reading helped them to relax. This is great news – and shows another aspect of reading that is so beneficial to children’s lives.
