Tips to help you enjoy books together every day
- Make animals noises or sounds effects-these help to bring the story to life and will make you both laugh!
- Cuddle up together or get brothers and sisters to join in and enjoy stories and rhymes together.
- Ask questions when you're reading together such as: "What can you see on this page?" "How do you think the characters feel?"
- Let your child be the storyteller. They can "read" the pictures to you and talk about what's happening on the page.
- Find somewhere quiet away from noise, television and mobile phones.
- If you feel comfortable, try pulling funny faces or putting on character voices-these always make children giggle!
The more you talk together, the more words your child will learn
