Tijdens het jubileumcongres van Stichting Lezen benadrukte de Amerikaanse emeritus hoogleraar Education, Stephen Krashen, het belang van vrij lezen voor de taalontwikkeling en de leesmotivatie van kinderen.

 'Reading for pleasure is the most powerful tool we have in language education. It is the only path there is in reaching higher levels of literacy, it is the source of increasing our reading ability, our vocabulary, spelling, the ability to handle complex grammar and to write comprehensively. We never had such good evidence from research that libraries are of such vital importance, yet governments all over the world are failing to provide acces to books.'
