Commenting on the launch of the Read On. Get On. strategy, to get every child reading well by the age of 11 by 2025, Stephen Lotinga, Chief Executive of the Publishers Association, said: “We are proud to be part of Read On. Get On. coalition, working with our literacy partners to promote reading for pleasure and to ensure every child can read well by the time they leave primary school.
“Reading for pleasure is key to unlocking literacy and enhancing life changes. As publishers are central to connecting authors with readers, discovering new creative talent and spreading a joy of reading, this is an important campaign for us to support.”
