World Cup Reading Football Card poster

Football card posterOver the last few months the National Literacy Trust has been collecting "World Cup Reading Football Card" submissions from children across the UK. Each nation participating in the 2014 World Cup is represented by a football card featuring a child living in the UK who has a connection to that nation. Instead of regular football cards, which show a player's football statistics, these cards show children's vital reading statistics – their favourite book and favourite football-related reading material. As well as encouraging children from every World Cup nation to become excited about reading, these cards reflect the international focus of the World Cup tournament and celebrate the diversity to be found within the UK. 

These submissions have been turned into a World Cup Reading Football Card poster. You'll see that we are still missing a few nations, so if you know a young person who could fill the spot please email
