  • Noreen Doherty says:

    Hi great idea there is a need to get children back into reading too many games out there imagination needs to be used both myself and husband read stories to our children at bedtime and they too now can tell their own stories literally. My husband is the best really he can really story tell stories that children would love smelly ones actually. They love him because he makes them up.

  • Meg says:

    Superb idea, schools need the resource and children can only benefit from having a wide variety
    of books to choose from. Hope all children in Ireland will benefit in some way from this
    great initiative.

  • Kathleen says:

    My daughter loved to read and now my niece (aged 9) and my nephew (aged 8) love to read and are quite advanced at this stage.

  • Olivia says:

    What a great idea, often books are forgotten at this time of year, but last long after the toys are broken. What a skill to know how to read. Happy Christmas to all (with an Easons Book!)

  • Gill Spillett says:

    Great idea! Reading for fun, for pleasure and for learning is the way forward. Foster a love of reading :-)

  • Dolores o'Reilly Parr says:

    Fantastic idea – my daughter’s treat on a Saturday is to go to Easons and browse through the books before making her purchase. I have tried pledging using the electronic facility but it does not seem to be registering.

  • Ann says:

    What a great campaign – I am a grandmother to nine – My parents always read to me, as I did to my daughters, who in turn have read to their children. The pleasure of reading a book is so important , and in this hi-tech age, and should be nurtured.

  • Patricia Doherty says:
