What parents can do to help

What Parents can do to help

  • Try to find 10 quiet minutes everyday to look at a book

  • If it is a new book always read it to your child first

  • Talk about the stories to help increase confidence - ask plenty of questions and offer praise

  • If they don’t get it right avoid saying ‘no that’s wrong’ - try reading it together

  • Encourage reading in everyday life. E.g. At the supermarket
