The Benefits of Reading for Pleasure

The American Library Association has researched studies and found a strong connection between daily independent reading and overall academic performance.  Here are the findings they cite from numerous studies:

  • "Students who read independently become better readers, score higher on achievement tests in all subject areas, and have greater content knowledge than those who do not"

  • "The more elementary-aged students read outside of school, the higher they scored on reading achievement tests"

  • "Multiple studies support that even a small amount of independent reading increases primary and elementary students' reading comprehension, vocabulary growth, spelling facility, understanding of grammar, and knowledge of the world"

* Cited from an article by Monica Fuglei, "How Reading for Pleasure Helps Students Develop Academically," on Concordia University-Portland Website

A person who won't read has no advantage over the one who can't read.
