The main focus for our new parents coffee mornings this week was a clear message about reading.
The most important gift you can give your child is to surround them with books and make time to read for pleasure everyday. Read in English and/or your home language - picture books, fiction, non fiction, graphic novels, poetry, recipes, instructions, your own stories…….the list is endless.
Children copy those around them so always have a book on the go yourself; model that love and enjoyment, show that you value reading.
“Show me a family of readers, and I will show you the people who move the world.” – Napoléon Bonaparte
