Increasing numbers of British children live in homes without books and have difficulties reading.
Researchers have shown that lower socioeconomic status correlates strongly with lower literacy levels and lower educational achievements in general.
In line with this, the National Literacy Trust’s report on the state of literacy in the UK in 2010 notes that children not reaching expected literacy levels are more likely to be from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The report also specifies that fathers with higher income read to their children more often: 21% of dads in £40-50k income households read to their children, compared with only 11% in homes with annual income of £10-15k.
