Philip Pullman has encouraged parents to fill their homes with books to get their children reading. Speaking to the Oxford Mail in support of the Oxfordshire Reading Campaign, he said “Make sure you have lots of books in the house, lots of attractive picture books, and some interesting stories as they get older […] Enrol your child at the library – that is very important.
