JUST one in five parents read their kids a bedtime story.
And more than two-thirds of mums and dads feel guilty about that, found a survey for hotel chain Novotel.
Luckily, The Sun’s amazing Books For Schools campaign is back. It launches tomorrow and allows you to collect tokens and get free books for your child’s primary school.

Once the school has 3,500 tokens, they can redeem a free pack of books worth over £600.
Meanwhile, here are five other ways to get your hands on cut-price books . . .
