The Benefits of Picture Books for Babies

When should I start reading to my baby? From one day old!

Reading build baby's literacy skills, introduces concepts such as numbers, colours, letters and shapes, and teaches them about the world around them.

Education Advisor, Natasha Perrins, has shared with us some of her thoughts -  “Children learn to speak through exposure to spoken language. Therefore, reading to children from an early age is central to this development as they actively listen, and process information being shared with them and develop their own capacity to communicate verbally and non-verbally for a range of purposes”, Natasha said. 

Our blog, The Importance Of Reading To Children, shares some top tips for reading with children at all ages - as well as some recommended stories.
