Although they are older now and albeit to say, they don't snuggle on my lap for a story, it is still something I love doing with them and for me reinventing our favourite book is something we all get have a part in.
We hear so much about the importance of reading and the lack there of in today's age, but I do believe it's not all bad. You just have to find what needs, suit your child. Read-alongs like this, are not only a bonding session, but getting your child enthusiastic about reading, will make them keen to learn to read by themselves. In no time at all, they will be recognising words and reading along with you!
In keeping with bedtime story reading, the Brimbank municipality, with the participation of their libraries hold bedtime reading sessions, where pre-schoolers, to any age child, is welcome to hear stories read aloud.
The sessions begin at 6.30pm and all children, (parents too!) are encouraged to wear their pyjamas to the read-alongs.
