I was often told by by wonderful mother that I didn’t enjoy reading as a child.
Well mum, you got that one wrong! I really enjoy reading & if I could turn back time I would give her the following advice!
*Turn off your screens and make reading a part of family life. Have books available in your house. Be a role model & show children you too enjoy reading!
*Find stories that interest your child- I love crime stories today, but didn’t realise that as a child.
*Get your child to write stories.
*Enjoy bedtime stories together. Take it in turns to read each page.
*Make at least 1 day in every school holiday a family reading day!
I hope I haven’t offended my mum!
