Interesting Fact - Reading

According to a survey carried out by, only 33% of parents in the UK read their child a bedtime story.

(Some parents said that their children would much rather watch TV, play with toys or computer games, but 13 per cent blamed lack of time for not reading to them and 9 per cent said they were 'too stressed'.

I was read to regularly, and it was part of my bedtime routine, in fact three quarters of the parents surveyed said they were read to every night of the week as children.)
