WBD – Quiz

 

It’s World Book Day!

Today is World Book Day, a day when children (and adults) all over the world celebrate books and reading. (I’ll let you into a secret….I believe everyday is World Book Day!)

I’ve been doing some research about reading….

Did you know?

  • If you read for 20 minutes a day you will have read 1,800,000 words in one year!
  • You will learn between 4,000 and 12,000 words in one year just by reading!
  • Regular reading improves brain connectivity, reduces stress, aids sleep, helps increase self confidence and reduces feelings of loneliness.
  • Reading can take you all over the world….in your imagination!
  • Regular reading improves your concentration and helps your understanding of different cultures and customs.

You don’t just have to read books. You can read ANYTHING – Leaflets, newspapers, magazines, cereal packets, comics, labels on jars/tins, road signs, cookery books, poems, jokes, instructions, labels on the supermarket shelves, bottles of bubble bath, anything with words!!

You can also read ANYWHERE – at bedtime, in the bath, listen to stories in the car, read in the garden, read on the beach, read in the car, read in a tractor, read up a tree…..

So, today (and everyday) enjoy a story. Listen to a story or read to yourself. How does it make you feel?

Thank you for sending in your distances for our River Ganges Challenge. Don’t forget you can walk, run, cycle, travel anyway you like!

Getting outside for some fresh air and exercise is so good for our physical and mental health!
