The State of Children and Reading
The fifth edition of the Kids & Family Reading Report™, a national survey of children ages 6–17 and their parents that was released in January 2015, found that:
- Half of all children (51%) ages 6–17 are currently reading a book for fun, and another one in five (20%) has just finished one
- Both children (54%) and parents (71%) say strong reading skills are among the most important skills children should have, yet the frequency of reading a book for fun is on the decline
