Fun with Reading

Sharing books with children has many wonderful benefits and it will give you the opportunity to cuddle up, relax and share a special moment with your child. And remember, it's never too early or late to start!

Reading with your child can:

  • Develop your child’s language skills
  • Help you bond with your child
  • Help your child feel more relaxed
  • Boost your child’s confidence
  • Encourage your child to draw and write
  • Give your child a head start in life

Most importantly, it’s lots of fun! Take a trip to your local library and borrow a variety of fantastic books for free. If you need some inspiration for what to read next, take a look at our themed book lists.
