World Book Day & The Power of Reading
Did your child celebrate World Book Day on 2 March by dressing up as a favourite character or come home from school clutching one of the 15 million £1 book tokens that were distributed?
There is a powerful message and motive behind all the fun - research proves that children who enjoy reading do better at school in all subjects. So if you want to give your child a head start, it’s important to start reading with them as early as possible. Reading together not only increases literacy skills - it helps to build a strong and loving relationship between you. Even an unborn baby can hear you from around 18 weeks, and will recognise your voice before they are born!
Help them develop a lifelong love of books and reading.... Check out these useful links with tips on reading with your child and encouraging your child to read:
