15 Julia Donaldson books in 15 days – 5 year old Layla’s amazing Readathon challenge!

Layla’s Mum tells us more..

When Layla heard about ‘Readathon’ from her school, she was so excited and could not wait to start. As a keen reader who loves books, she found huge sympathy with children who may not have the simple enjoyment of a book. Creating an online event, she was able to record and post video’s of her reading for family and friends. Setting herself a challenging target of 15 Julia Donaldson books in 15 days, her motivation had her finishing in just 9! Already planning to take part again next year, we are extremely proud of her and hope that her participation will inspire other children to take part. But more than anything we wish that all children are given the resources and encouragement to read.
