Footballers champion reading
Leading Scottish Premier League footballers are supporting a new project which uses the motivational power of football to encourage families to improve their reading skills. Launched yesterday by the Scottish Government, the Scottish Premier League and the National Literacy Trust, the project involves a footballer from each SPL club who has chosen their favourite adult and children's book to create an inspirational reading list. These books form the basis for reading sessions with groups of parents and their children who will meet at libraries across Scotland. Read the full press release on SPL Reading Stars to find out which books the footballers have chosen.
