The Bedtime Story Dying Out

The traditional bedtime story is dying out, a new study has suggested, as a third of parents reveal they never read their young children a story at night. 

From a piece in the Telegraph...

Only 64 per cent of parents with children under seven read to them at all, while a mere one in five of those get a book out every night. 
The study shows the average modern day child gets three bedtime stories a week. 
But a quarter of a million children aged seven or under – around four per cent – do not own a single book.
