Reading regularly with your child helps them to discover which books, authors and genres they enjoy the most.
We want you to read more with your child – not only with younger children, but the older ones too.
Why? Well research shows that a child who reads for pleasure will do better at school, even in subjects like maths. http://www.booktrust.org.uk/news-and-blogs/news/1425
So reading for pleasure should be encouraged whenever possible as establishing and reinforcing good habits from an early age enables pupils to develop the skills they need for later life.
Finding some time each day to share a story with your child could help shape their future!
