Reading with your child
14 Jan 2013

Sometimes parents are not able to share a book each night at bedtime with their children, but if you can manage 10 minutes during most days, your child will have the best chance of becoming a good reader.

Most brain development happens between birth and three years of age. Starting to learn to read when children start school may be easier if children start to enjoy books at an earlier age. Parents can share stories and rhymes right from the early months.
