据英国《每日邮报》2月15日报道,近日,英国9岁小女孩菲斯·杰克逊抛弃电视和电脑游戏,用7个月时间阅读了364本书,几乎每天两本,被称为现实生活中的“玛蒂尔达“。

菲斯·杰克逊就是这样一个书呆子,她每天都喜欢看《非洲七种秘密神客》、著名的《五点俱乐部》和《行为不端的熊》。继作家罗尔德·达尔笔下的书本爱好者Crunchem Hall。

The nine-year-old shuns TV and computer games, preferring to settle down with a Roald Dahl or Harry Potter.

Now she has been awarded a certificate of achievement by Cressida Cowell, author of How To Train Your Dragon.

Faith, of Ashley, Cheshire, gained her passion for books two years ago after being encouraged to read more by teachers at her primary school.

Her mother, Lauren, 35, said: “Faith says reading is just as stimulating as TV or computer games because you have to use your imagination rather than let the screen conjure it up for you.

“It is a shame that for many children these forms of entertainment have entirely taken the place of reading.“ Faith said: “I mostly like books with animals or magic or adventures in them. But my life is not all about books.

“I do four hours of gymnastics every week, do karate classes, play netball and I’m learning to play the drums.

“I also like climbing and riding my bike, rollerblading and watching the odd bit of television.“

Author Cressida said: “Reading for pleasure is a key factor in a child’s later educational success.

“As a nation we need to get our children reading for the joy of it, like Faith.“
