Reading for Pleasure improves the likelihood of academic success later in life. It is good for well-being and happiness. The huge range of children's books offers endless opportunities for children to imagine, explore, relax, go on adventures, empathise and learn. Being part of your child's reading journey is an important way to encourage them to read for pleasure independently. On this page you will find tips and ideas about how to get your child reading.
