The pandemic has exacerbated many inequalities in society. This includes economic inequalities, which frequently stem from educational disadvantages. One of the most crucial of the factors leading to poverty of education is poor reading standards, or even illiteracy. This frequently has its roots well before school. My aim is to try to encourage pre-school children to enjoy reading.
The charity, Doorstep Library states that reading (or a lack of functional literacy) & poverty are directly linked. I hope that my idea outlined below below helps in some small way to encourage young children to develop a love of books and reading.
