Reading habits of 6-17 year olds in Canada 2017, by age group This statistic shows the share of children and teenagers in Canada who read books for fun compared to activities involving screen time as of February 2017, broken down by age group. The findings show that 50 percent of children between six and eight years old were reading for fun 5-7 times per week, compared to just 25 percent of 15-17 year olds. Interestingly, whilst the activity of reading for pleasure multiple times each week reduced with age, social media use increased dramatically. Just nine percent of 6-8 year olds were using social media sites and apps 5-7 times per week, whereas 43 percent of 12-14 year olds and 66 percent of 15-17 year olds were doing the same.
