First steps

First steps – The act of reading aloud together can really help children who are reluctant readers

Sharing stories with a child, singing nursery rhymes together and establishing a story routine at night can be some of the most rewarding time a parent/carer can spend with their children. Simply encouraging a child to join in with rhymes or to follow a story are both very important first steps in supporting the development of reading, vocabulary, communication and concentration skills.
