Reading is a fundamental skill your child will use for the rest of their life – so why stop when they’re just getting started?
Never Stop Reading! encourages families to read aloud even when their children can read by themselves.
Research shows that reading aloud improves children’s knowledge and vocabulary, as well as their writing and comprehension. By listening to their children read aloud, families are supporting their children’s learning, and increasing their confidence and sense of security.
Never stop reading to your child, even when they can read for themselves!
Building a love of reading in your child by reading aloud at home strengthens their language, vocabulary and comprehension skills, and improves their social skills and confidence as you listen to them read.
The quality time you will also spend with your child raises their mood and sense of wellbeing, and creates those special moments you and they will always cherish.
Build a love of reading in your child and give them the best start for a life of learning and discovery.
