Irish children love reading! A survey by Bord Gáis Energy has found over half of Irish parents read to their children before they reach six months old.

The survey marks the launch of Little Readers, which sees the energy company give free books to children aged 0-5. To register for a free book, log onto www.bordgaisenergybookclub.ie. The company will donate €1 for each registration to Irish Premature Babies.
