Reading with Your Child

Why is reading important?


Reading together every day and having fun with stories will make your child a more confident reader.

•  Read to your child

• Tell your child stories – from books from your childhood to stories that you’ve made up

• Talk to your child about the books that you’ve read

• Look out for rhyming words when you read together

•Let your child see you reading.
