The aim of the Reading Hour is to promote reading to children. It’s not always possible for parents to share a book at bedtime with your children, but if you can manage 10 minutes most nights, your child will have the best chance of becoming a good reader, with all the social and educational benefits that brings.
Most of our brain development happens between birth and three years of age, so it’s not enough to assume that your children will learn to read when they get to school. Parents need to share stories and rhymes right from day one – and a good way of finding out more is to join storytimes.
The date for this years reading hour is Tuesday 15th August. We will release details closer to the time, but the best way to keep up-to-date with our events is through signing up to our fabulous newsletter.
