The Brilliance of Books


It’s never too early to read to your child. Research shows that children who are read to are more likely to have a better vocabularly, understanding and conservational skills when they start school, compared to children who are not read to. This is directly linked to academic success.
 
Tops tips to remember when using books:-
  • Follow your child’s lead. Children learn best based on what they are interested in. By reading books that your child enjoys you will help develop their attention and listening skills and help them learn new words that are interesting for them.
  • Limit distractions when you have reading time with your child. Turn off the T.V and get comfy together. Reading with your child is a lovely way to spend some quality time together.
  • Your local library will have lots of different books to borrow and fun things to take part in. For example story and rhyme time and story workshops.
  • Get involved in world book day 1st March 2018. They are encouraging families to share a story for ten minutes a day.
