Happy World Book Day - I hope you find a space in your day to curl up with something good to read. But in these days of the read/write web, Kindles, ebooks and social networking, I think it's a good day to celebrate literacy of all kinds.
So if I told you that 12 million people in the UK have difficulties with reading and writing, would you believe me? If I also told you that over one third of the population in this country don't pick up a book - would you believe that? - It's pretty shocking isn't it? And it's true.
Children are growing up in an increasingly technological world. Think back to how much has changed in the last 10 years and we can not possibly imagine what life will be like for our youngest children by the time they leave school.
