Novel news: world’s biggest bookworms revealed in study – Naaman Zhou.

Do you have more books than an Estonian teenager? If you live in an English-speaking country, the answer is probably no.

Researchers reveal having more books at home when growing up, even if you don’t necessarily read more, improves educational outcomes.

Adults with university degrees, but who grew up with fewer books, had the same level of literacy as those who left school in year 9, but who had a lot of household books as a teen.

It’s important for young children to see their parents and other people surrounding themselves with books.”
