Reading stories is fun for everyone

Reading a story together is a great way to spend time. Children love it when you point out things in the pictures, talk about the different characters in the story and read the words together. And a story at bedtime is always a great way to get them settled down for the night.

Handy tips

Kids love doing grown-up things. So the next time you pop out for a few things at the shops, why not let your child have a go at counting out and paying at the till?

Pick somewhere your child goes to a lot – like their school, or the park, or a shop – and ask them to write down directions for how to get there from your home.

Even mealtimes can turn into storytimes. Ask your child to create a story about the Cutlery family – with characters like Peggy Plate, Jamie Knife, Fiona Fork and Baby Spoon.
