Each time you share a book with your child, you are securing their future. A child who develops an early love of reading has a much greater chance of succeeding in all areas of life; books can help to stimulate imagination and satisfy curiosity.
Little steps today such as enjoying a wonderful bedtime book each night, or laughing together over a silly picture book before dinner, gives you quality time together. Ensuring your child becomes a skilled and adaptable reader enhances their chances of success at school and beyond.
Whatever stage of reading your child is at, it is always helpful to read to your child rather than insist they read to you. We become readers by being read to.
Enjoy the pleasure of snuggling up to your child and sharing a book together!
