We're all about promoting reading for pleasure to children to help improve their reading skills and confidence and to support initiatives that do this.
Read for My School is a new national schools reading competition from The Pearson Foundation and Booktrust, with support from the Department for Education.
It's free for all primary schools in England, open to children in years 5 and 6
and it's running from 21 January to 22 March 2013, so you haven't got long to get involved.
Reading for pleasure is at the heart of the initiative, which aims to generate excitement about books and cultivate long-lasting positive attitudes towards reading.
Children who attend participating schools will be encouraged to read as much as they can and explore a variety of genres and formats as they chose their own books and they are encouraged to recommend titles they have enjoyed to friends
The competitive element of the programme is designed to be fun and motivational for children of all abilities, whilst giving them the opportunity to read their way to rewards for themselves and their schools.
All registered schools will be entered into a prize draw to receive a donation of fantastic books taken from a pot of 100,000 books provided by Pearson.

Over the Summer, 750,000 children take part in the Summer Reading Challenge where they get rewards for and read six books. Many schools get involved to promote and support the Challenge to children and parents. Find out more about how you can work with us to keep children's reading skills and confidence up over the Summer.
We run a children's reading website - where children can log what they are reading, get reading recommendations from their peers, win badges, unlock exclusive content, chat and get advice from librarians, enter competitions and meet writers. It's a fun, free, safe and creative way for children to talk about and celebrate their own reading.
