Reading at home
"You're never to old, too wacky, too wild to pick up a book and read with a child"
Children fall in love with books because of the memories created when they snuggle up and read with someone they love.
Wherever you are and whatever you can commit to as a parent, we believe setting up a reading routine is the most important thing to do! On this page you will find resources to help you.
If you read a book daily to your child then by the time they are 5 years old they have been exposed to 1825 books!
Reading builds motivation, curiosity and memory.
Please read with your child for at least 20 minutes per day.
