Whether you have a little bookworm or a reluctant reader, Ireland Reads is a fantastic initiative – a national day to celebrate reading, what could be better? Taking place on February 25th, you can pledge to read as much or as little as you like. If you’re not sure where to start, or on the hunt for some new books to read, we’ve rounded up some of our favourites below.
Little ones will love the joyful tales from Eric Carle and the best bedtime stories chosen by parents, while older readers will enjoy books full of magic, mystery, giants, and laugh-out-loud hilarity. If your child enjoys non-fiction, we’ve got great picks to learn more about nature, dinosaurs, space and even magic tricks!
Take the pledge at Ireland Reads and see how many minutes people all over Ireland will be reading for on February 25th. One minute, 10 minutes, an hour, or more – it doesn’t matter how long you read for or what you read! Why? Because taking some time for yourself to relax and do the things you enjoy (like reading) is important to help look after your mental wellbeing.
Ireland Reads is a public libraries initiative, in partnership with Healthy Ireland, publishers, booksellers, authors and others.
