What Kids Want In Books... Scholastic's 2015 Reading Report Teaser

The Kids & Family Reading Report is a national survey of children ages 6–17 and their parents exploring attitudes and behaviors around reading books for fun.

All the numbers are really interesting, but what stunned me was:

73% of kids ages 6-17 say "I would read more if I could find more books that I like."
There's opportunity there, for librarians, teachers, parents, bloggers, and yes, especially for those of us who illustrate and writer works for children and teens!

You can read more about the study's methodology here. And Thanks to Darcy Pattison for sharing the infographic.

Illustrate and Write On,
