How long will it take *kids* to read?

You might remember this How Long Will It Take to Read? infographic created by Personal Creations I shared with you last fall. They’ve created another version of this graphic, focusing on 50 popular kids books this time, including The Velveteen Rabbit, The Chronicles of Narnia and the Harry Potter series.

For the infographic, the designers took average reading speed based on the grade level appropriate for each book and calculated how long it would take kids to tackle popular children’s books based on academic fluency standards.

You can see the entire graphic here. And if you’d like to share it, the code is available at
