    8. 8. Kids & Reading<br />A majority of kids say they like to read books for fun and that reading books for fun is important.<br />Most kids perceive a correlation between reading and success.<br />
    9. 9. Kids & Reading<br />Reading frequency declines after age eightand is stronger among girls than boys.<br />Trouble finding books they like is a key reason kids say they do not read more frequently.<br />
    10. 10. Technology & Reading<br />Kids believe that technology will complement — not replace — book reading. <br />After age eight, more childrengo online daily than read for fun daily; however, high frequency Internet users are still more likely than lower frequency users toread books for fun every day.<br />
    11. 11. Nearly two in three online tweens and teens (age 9-17) have extended the reading experience via the Internet. These kids are more likely to value and enjoy reading, read more frequently, and agree with the statement: “No matter what I can do online, I’ll always want to read books printed on paper.”<br />2008 Kids & FamilyReading Report™<br />
