Reading in foster families

Rix, Katie; Lea, Jo and Edwards, Amy (2017). Reading in foster families. Book Trust and National Children's Bureau.



This report summarises the results of a UK-wide survey with almost 600 foster carers and interviews with a small number of foster carers and children. The purpose of the research was to find out more about carers’ reading habits and attitudes, how they engage with reading with their children (particularly reading for pleasure), any barriers they face and any support that they need.
