How to encourage your child to read
Read yourself! Set a good example by sharing your reading. Let your children see that you value books and keep them at home.
Keep books safe. Make your child their own special place to keep their books. Show them how to turn pages carefully.
Point out words all around you. Help your child to read the words around them: on food packets in the supermarket, on buses, in newspapers, in recipes.
Visit your library – it’s free to join! All libraries have children’s sections. Many also have regular storytelling sessions.
Make time to read. Read a bedtime story with your child every night. Encourage them to share reading with grandparents, brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles.
