Raising a reader

Making reading a part of your relationship with your child will help your child at school and establish a life-long love for learning. Reading with, or to your child, can:

  • give your child a head start

  • help develop your child’s attention span and listening skills

  • increase your child’s vocabulary

  • help you know your child better

  • make you a reading role model

  • help develop your child’s confidence in a supportive environment

  • teach your child that learning is fun

  • make your child feel secure and valued as you spend time reading together

  • help your child learn about your family and life as you talk about the book together.
