This is the ultimate parenting book about getting your child to read. "It's a book that lives in that space between education in school and education at home. A thousand times better than those books of worksheets telling you "How to pass Sats" that sit on spinners in newsagents" (Michael Rosen, children's author and former children's laureate). "If a child reads for pleasure it is the single biggest indicator of their future success - much more than parents' educational background or social success.' Would you like your child to read for pleasure or read more than they do? In this easy-to-use and accessible guide, Alison David, Consumer Insight Director at Egmont Publishing, gives you the tools you need to help your child love reading. In the era of Snapchat and Instagram, fostering a love of reading and regular reading habits has never been harder for parents. This book is filled with expert advice about how to turn reading in your home from yet another chore into a fun experience that will bring parent and child closer together. Getting your child engaged with reading will increase their confidence, encourage language development and improve their life chances.
This book contains: strategies for each age range, from baby to young adult; easy-to-follow steps to carve out time for a reading routine; ideas and inspiration for what and how to read. This is an essential addition to the parenting bookshelf. "This book isn't just for families that have children who don't embrace reading with enthusiasm and love, but can help established reading families too." (Sally, Space on the Bookshelf). Alison David works as a consumer research expert at Egmont UK, the publisher of Winnie-the-Pooh, Mr Men and many other much-loved children's books. Through her extensive research, and as a parent herself, Alison has a real insight into the challenges facing reading.
