Children would rather read books that make them laugh than stories featuring TV characters, research has revealed.
The research report, issued by Pearson to mark the launch of its Read for My School national reading competition (www.readformyschool.co.uk), found that one in five of the books chosen by 100,000 children in more than 3,000 schools were in the “Laugh out Loud” category.
The Read for My School annual competition, which kicks off this term, challenges pupils in England to read as many books as they can in two months – either online from a free digital library, or offline.
