The Let's Read vision is for
all Australian children to share books, stories, songs and nursery rhymes
every day from birth with the important people in their lives.
Why is reading important?
Almost half (46%) of Australians over 15 lack the literacy skills they
need to meet the demands of everyday life and work.
Literacy is one of the most important foundations for success in school
and life. It is well documented that an individual's literacy levels
affect their opportunities in life for education, employment, income and
