Parents Space 

Why read to your child?

  • Reading builds listening, speaking and memory skills

  • Reading introduces numbers, letters, colours, and shapes in a fun way

  • Studies show that if children are read to early they will enjoy reading and learning more, and they will do better in school


How to help children love books

  • It's never too early to start reading to your child, you can start with simple picture books with little or no words

  • Join your local library - it’s free! Your library has books for all ages and access to more books results in more reading

  • Spend a little time reading with your child every day, even if it’s just for a few minutes before bedtime. Use rhymes, songs and poems to encourage your child to play around with new words/sounds

  • Most of all… relax, have fun and enjoy reading with your child
