A love for reading can be hugely valuable for children. The benefits of leisure reading include increased general knowledge, a positive impact on academic achievement, enhanced reading ability and vocabulary growth.
Research suggests that time spent reading for pleasure could be a key indicator for the future success of a child. Reading aloud too fosters a love of books in children, and helps children associate reading with pleasure.
If you would like to support your children’s reading with fun and accessible books to read why not give your local library a call and have a chat with the staff to find the right books for your children?
