The importance of reading suitably-challenging books

Research shows that when children read suitably-challenging books that are not too easy or too hard, they make the most progress and growth. However, it is important that they feel able to read a wide selection of materials – from newspapers and magazines, to the latest David Walliams title. For best results, we recommend that at least 60% of what children read is within their Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD). These buttons link to more information and resources you may find useful:
