Many studies have demonstrated that reading books to children from the earliest ages have long-term benefits on social, language, reading and later academic success. Sova (2016) found that parent-child interactions with children’s books provided the best environment for language learning - parents used more words per minute than in other play situations & used a wider variety of vocabulary with book play.

The children’s books, (Book Teaching & Talking Tips, Information blogs and age related tips) available below are uniquely designed and written to maximise parent-child interactions and to coach parents on book reading techniques to ensure book reading is provided at the right level for each individual child so they get the most benefit from books possible. Great for children who don’t seem to be interested in books to children that love books. Happy Reading!
