Read Aloud

Reading aloud is an essential step on a child's journey to independent reading and can help foster a life-long love of books. This special section includes a selection of books which we think are perfect for reading aloud to children, with lively storylines or interesting facts, and with inspiring illustrations to help your child learn to love reading.

Reading stories aloud will help your child develop key literacy skills, recognise letters and understand how a story develops.

It is also a lovely nurturing time when you can spend time with young children without the distractions of modern life.

If you would like to find out a bit more about the benefits of reading aloud you can visit www.booktrust.org.uk which also has top tips from Early Reading specialist, Emily Guille-Marrett.
