Book Week- Read, Inspire, Grow

It's book week and we are celebrating the importance of reading with children- right from birth!

Why reading is important for babies and young children

Reading books, sharing stories, talking and singing every day helps your child’s development in many ways.

Reading and storytelling can:

  • help your child get to know sounds, words and language, and develop early literacy skills

  • introduce your child to the value of books and stories

  • spark your child’s imagination and curiosity

  • promote your child’s brain development and ability to focus and concentrate

  • help your child build social, communication and emotional skills

  • help your child learn about the world, their own culture and other cultures.

Reading stories with children has benefits for you too. The special time you spend reading together promotes bonding and builds your relationship with your child.
