The Read Everyday Challenge With A Giveaway From The Book People!

Books, glorious books! Is there anything more wonderful in life than completely and utterly immersing yourself in a book? If you enjoy reading, you'll know all too well the feeling of finishing a book and feeling a little bit bereft that you're no longer still sharing the world of the characters you've grown to love. It's no secret that I consider myself a bit of an introvert and so for me, reading is the ultimate escapism; a way for me to be both alone yet still in company. Books can transport you back in time, can launch you into the future, fly you through the stars and have you home in time for tea. By introducing children to the joy of reading, you give them the gift of new and exciting worlds and enable them to journey on an array of spellbinding adventures. I've been keen to introduce my little boys to the wonderful world of reading from an early age and so I've always endeavoured to provide them with access to books and to read regularly to them. And now that my eldest can read, I try to encourage him to enjoy quiet time exploring his books too. It's not always easy to get children to read; some will love it and others will need more encouragement and so I'd like to introduce you to the Read Everyday Challenge. The idea is to read to your child each day. If your child is older and is either starting to learn to read, or can confidently read, they may wish to read to you, or by themselves. This could be a chapter from a fiction book or pages from a fact book; whatever sparks their interest! If you have younger children, this could be a book a day; many books aimed at preschool and primary school-aged children are just the right length to capture their attention and are full of bright and captivating illustrations! Perfect for snuggling up together!


baby, reading

Throughout the next couple of weeks, I will be sharing ideas to help encourage your children to read everyday, sharing some of the ways books have inspired my little boys and the benefits of reading to your child.
