I’m very proud to be getting behind Booktrust‘s campaign to read every day. This is the first in a small series of posts to chat a bit more about it.
So now we know – readers are happier people! And we know that to nurture a lifelong love of reading you’ve got to grab ‘em when they’re young. Reading aloud to children, from tiny tots to children way WAY past the hurdle of being able to read independently, is the solid gold key to everything. The gift of time spent cosily together, reading, chatting, sharing; to hell with hoovering, emails can wait… this is the richest of mulches put into these little plant pots.
