Ever wonder how long it takes an average child to read their favorite book? Well, wonder no more, because this infographic gives you all of the information you could ever need in regard to these kinds of statistics.
What this infographic essentially does is tell you the average speed at which children read various age-appropriate books. For instance, it takes a 2nd grader around 3.4 minutes to read Clifford the Big Red Dog, and a 4th grader around 21.7 hours to finish reading the immense Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
If you have a child in this age group, it might be interesting to see where they fall on this chart for comparison. Just remember, these numbers won’t hold true for every kid; they’re just an average. I’m sure some enthusiastic children might take 10 minutes to read Clifford. Especially, if they really want to absorb every moment. If I remember correctly, I finished that Harry Potter book in about 10 hours. I was a nerd, what can I say.
While this infographic isn’t an exact science, it should give you a decent idea of how fast kids are reading these days.
