Reading at home 

What can I do at home to encourage reading?

There are many easy ways to encourage reading. For example:


Sharing books with your child is a great way to them into reading. 

Make sure that your home has different types of texts including books, magazines, comics 

Use ebooks to introduce them to reading aloud

Set aside a time for reading. This could be just before bed.

Try to ensure that your child's book is age-appropriate - if the book's too easy or too difficult, it could make it more difficult to engage them.
