We want to encourage a love of reading in children. It not only introduces them to new words and increases their vocabulary but it will help with their reading and language skills as they get older too.

Reading aloud to children is one of the best ways to get them interested in books. When you help your child learn to read, you are opening the door to a world of learning. Here are some ways to get the most out of reading to your young child.

Libraries are a great place to go to borrow books and if you need some new ideas, check out their reading lists. They run all sorts of events, like rhymetime and storytime you can join in with. And their Pebble library card is just for under fives.

Take a look at the 'Read with Me' leaflet.  You can read it online or print off a copy by downloading the file at the bottom of this page.
