The 6th of September marks National Read a Book Day, this day is an annual awareness day that encourages all of us to take a break and get reading.
Whether you’re rediscovering old favourites or delving into new bestsellers, National Read a Book Day is the perfect excuse to sit back, relax, and get lost in a book!
This day is also a great opportunity to get young people interested in reading and one of the best ways to do that is to read with them.
Start a new bedtime routine that includes a chapter of their favourite book each night, or swap half an hour of tv for half an hour of guided reading.
If you know some reluctant readers, introduce them to new types of texts such as comic books, e-books, and audiobooks.
Research has shown that even 10 minutes a day of reading and sharing stories with children can have a hugely positive impact on their development, both now and in the future!
