Why is it important to gift books for children to take home?
The Sleeping Storyteller raises funds to gift handmade story books to children from low income areas & to children who have life limiting health conditions. Studies show that children without their own books at home, are more likely to have negative attitudes towards reading, they read less, are less likely to enjoy reading and are more likely to attain poor literacy results in school. In addition, those children without books at home, were found to have higher support needs in relation to mental well being. In short, children with books at home, achieve more and are happier. The BOOKS@HOME CAMPAIGN puts the treasured nature of book ownership, back into the hands of children.
The National Literacy Trust (2018) found that one in eight children. living in low income areas, do not have books at home. The Sleeping Storyteller's BOOKS AT HOME CAMPAIGN wants to change that & promote equal access to books to pay forward kindness.
