Now we can’t read either

As if not knowing our multiple tables wasn’t enough, now it turns out we can’t read either!

More than 10% of the 1,000 parents asked had struggled to understand some words in the stories they had read to their five to 10-year-old children.

Parents said that they made up words they could not read or missed out difficult passages, the survey said.

How difficult is it!?

I really enjoy reading to my nearly-two-year-old daughter. While I realise books of any complexity suitable for ten-year-olds will likely be more challenging than baby stories, in some ways I think they are harder to read! You have to work harder to make them interesting, with tones of voice and changes in volume.
