Learning to read - and to love to read - is directly linked to children's success at school and beyond. Reading helps to widen children's imagination, range of vocabulary and increases their general knowledge.
As parents, you play an important role in helping to keep your child interested in reading. Find out what interests them, help them to find books that engage them and spend time reading the books that they bring home from school together.
It is important that your child not only reads to you but that you read to them too. This will help to instill a love of reading.
