Reading

Reading to children is the best way of encouraging them to love books and reading. By reading stories to children every day, you are forming a link for them between reading and comfort.


Engaging in books allows us to be transported to other places and worlds. Reading to children takes them into a world that goes well beyond our typical everyday spoken language.


The importance of reading for children cannot be underestimated, Reading for pleasure can benefit a child’s education, social and cognitive development, their wellbeing, and their mental health.


Reading is a key life skill.
