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 that your child will come to relish. And 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! Don't forget that you can borrow children's books for free at your local library and use these resources to help you enjoy reading with your child.
