Why is reading for 15-minutes a day so significant? This mystical number is often used by educators and reading organisations as the ultimate daily goal for a child; with language development, comprehension and literacy skills at the heart of this all-important milestone.

But did you know, reading can also make children happier? And grown-ups too!

Research from the University of Liverpool found that people who read more are reportedly less stressed, have greater levels of self-esteem and have an increased ability to cope with challenges. Not bad, eh?

With that in mind, here’s a sneak peek at the latest book releases on the app. It’s time to get reading!
