Accessible Reading for World Book Day 2021

Posted by Kim Piff on Mar 4, 2021 1:33:24 PM

World Book Day is here again! A celebration of books, children’s literature and a wonderful way to promote the joys of reading.

The mission of World Book Day is to change lives through a love of books and shared reading. In 2021, the focus is to encourage parents, children and young people to spend just ten minutes a day sharing a story – to encourage a lifelong love of reading.

At Dolphin, we are keen to ensure that all children have the opportunity to read. When books and reading are accessible to all children - including children with visual impairments or who are neurodivergent - it means all children have the opportunities to share in the successes reading brings.

“Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator for success in life, more than family circumstances, educational background, or income.”

At Dolphin, we aim to give people with sight loss the technology they need to read and succeed. In this blog, our partners at Calibre Audio explore some of the many benefits of reading - whether in print or as audio books.

For some people, reading a good book is as much a part of their daily routine as cleaning their teeth or eating and drinking. For others, reading is a passion or a hobby that they try to fit into their busy lives wherever possible. So, what could be better for a book lover, particularly those in the latter category, than being given more great reasons to read? More excuses to plan time to curl up with a book as the day stretches in front of you, and to reap the plentiful benefits it brings.
