I wish everyone a happy World Book Day!

Reading is one of life’s truly great joys and I am really enjoying my “reading tour” around primary schools across my constituency to discuss and promote the transformational power of reading for pleasure. Developing this habit will provide children with a lifelong support and treasure.

Reading also improves attainment outcomes for children across the board so it is important to encourage the regular habit of reading in children.

I attended a World Book Day celebration in Westminster again this year which was great fun.

I am currently reading a thriller, “The Child” by Fiona Barton, a cracking writer. What are you reading?
