We very much want all parents to read regularly with their children, from birth to their early teens.
This can be good fun for parents and children, and can provide a cosy period to settle the child down before sleep.
Even before a child can talk or read, it loves to hear the parents voice reading, or singing. This helps it to develop well in lots of ways.
Please also spend time talking to your child when you are out and about: don't be on your phone ignoring your child!!!
Just talk about the things you see: houses, lights, colours, plants, animals
