Adam Reach spoke with three local schools after training on Thursday to answer questions about World Book Day.
The Wednesday winger was joined on Zoom by children from Hillsborough Primary, Wharncliffe Side and Hallam Primary to discuss his reading habits.
World Book Day is an international campaign that encourages youngsters to read in their spare time.
Adam answered a number of questions from the children about the books he reads when he’s away from the field.
The Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme also donated a number of books to the schools involved.

Helen Shepherd from the Owls’ Community Programme said: “World Book Day is a great chance to express your love of reading for pleasure.
“Adam definitely inspired the children, as they got to speak to a player they look up to on the pitch who enjoys reading as much as they do!
“A big thank you to Adam for taking the time to answer the kids’ questions.”
Adam added: “It was really fun to take part!
“I do a fair amount of reading away from football, so if I can help to encourage any kids to do so as well then that’s a massive bonus.”
