Teach Our Young Generation Better: How Often Do You Encourage Your Child/ren To Read At Home?

Updated: May 17, 2018


I’ve been reading to both my girls since they were babies so it’s great to say, they are both good readers. My nine year old is astonishing at pronouncing words, she sometimes puts me to shame in all honesty. My four year old definitely puts the work into her learning and has moved up three reading stages since starting school in September. Generally, my youngest reads nearly everyday and she has no problem with it at all. My oldest reads every other day due to other learning we do at home weekly such as spelling tests, mathematics and school work.


”Reading Is To Mind, What Exercise Is Too the Body.”

- Joseph Addison


Reading Can:

  1. Help Build Mental Stimulation

  2. Improve Writing Skills

  3. Widen Vocabulary

  4. Help Enhance Self Character

  5. Improve Speech

  6. Build Confidence

  7. Improve Social Skills

  8. Provide Relaxation

  9. Improve Focus & Concentration

  10. Increase Knowledge

  11. Release Stress

  12. Improve Cognitivity

As you can see, the benefits from reading are huge and I am sure there are plenty more.


"A Book Is A Gift You Can Open Again And Again."

- Garrison Keillor


There are so many books out there which can assist on your child/rens journey into exploring and reading so here are a few which helped the girls from toddlers to pre-school and beyond.



“That’s Not My...” by Fiona Watts

This 18 book collection is awesome for the young ones interaction. It allows them to explore different textures/materials and is quite fun and catchy too.


Read With Biff, Chip & Kipper - Oxford University Press

These books are classics and have been going for years throughout schools and homes, elevating young minds and helping the reading processes. They come in three stages: Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3.






“Superphonics” by Ruth Miskin’s

These set of books are great and come in four different colours: Blue, Green, Purple and Turquoise. These groups of colours are so your child/ren can progress with confidence from easy words to harder ones.





Further more, there are also many books you can read to you child/ren. Here are some we have at home and fully enjoy too. Check out the list below:

Rumble In The Jungle - Giles Andreae

Big Hair Don’t Care - Crystal Swain-Bates
