Premier League Reading Stars (UK)

Premier League Reading Stars (UK)Premier League Reading Stars is an educational project that harnesses the motivational power of football to encourage families to enjoy reading. It targets those hard to reach groups in society who may not have shown an interest in reading, but who do have a passion for football. Each of the 20 Premier League clubs nominate a Reading Star to recommend his favourite book. Each club then adopts local public libraries who host reading clubs based on the book choices of all 20 Premier League Reading Stars. Both the children and parents attend the reading club, also enjoying a visit to a bookshop, a session with a published football author and a visit to the club stadium. Some lucky readers may also get to meet their favourite team's Reading Star!
