It is never too early to start enjoying books with your child, and reading from an early age helps to give them the best possible start in life.
Sharing a book is fun and a time for closeness, laughing and talking together, and helps children’s wellbeing, imagination, as well as social and emotional developmental skills. Reading strengthens the bond with children and helps them become confident, happy learners who are ready for school.
All families can get free multi-sensory Bookstart packs from their health visitor, library or nursery, borrow books for free from Hull’s libraries, or there are some great books online with the BookTrust.
