Robert Shows his Support for World Book Day

Robert said: "As today is World Book Day, I hope parents, grandparents and carers in West Oxfordshire will take time to read for ten minutes with their children. I know from experience with my young son that sharing stories together, at home or school, in the library or in the park, on a bus or train – anywhere, anytime – for just ten minutes a day has a really positive effect on children.

"Every year, 'World Book Day' creates bespoke £1 books for children and young adults across the UK and Ireland, to promote the magic of books, the power of imagination and the importance of reading. This year the campaign is urging parents and carers to take ten minutes to ‘share a story’ with their children, to revive reading as a national pastime."
