There is a transition from learning to read to reading to learn, and the needs and skills of readers changes as they develop. This informal and informative workshop will examine ways to promote a love of reading in your child, from early years through to the teenagers.


The session will examine core strategies to promote a love of reading for your child from early years through to the teenage years. Being a reader, making reading meaningful, helping children choose the right book, broadening our view of what ‘reading’ is and developing critical literacy skills are crucial to establishing a love of reading.
Do you still need to read with your child?
How do you engage with older readers in a meaningful and supportive way?
What do you do if your child doesn’t like reading?
These questions and more will be discussed in this informal and interactive workshop.
