In this episode, Alix Robertson, Junior Researcher at LKMco, shares a selection of research that she has been reading lately, with Dr Sam Baars, Director of Research. Sam and Alix look at an article from The Guardian in March, which reports on the 2018 findings of an annual survey into the reading habits of 2,000 British 0- to 17-year-olds. They also discuss ‘Reflecting Realities’, a survey of ethnic representation within UK Children’s Literature in 2017 by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education. Finally, they explore research from Sheffield Hallam University, which looks at the collections of LGBTQ* fiction for teenagers in English public library services.
