Author of Goth Girl, former children’s laureate and president of the School Library Association, Chris Riddell said: “Read for Good is of course a force for good. Its Readathon gets whole schools reading – what a thing – supporting school libraries and bringing the power of stories to children in hospital. One of the most important things you can do is encourage children to read. Read for Good does this in buckets with its Readathon. I’ve seen its impact firsthand both in schools and hospitals.”
