Children’s Book Week throws the spotlight each year on READING and on the importance and joy of being able to read.
Here in primary school we are charged with the privilege of supporting your child in the early years to discover how letters carry meaning and when formed together in certain combinations, create sounds and words.
We read class books together and we hover over words of interest and pictures that capture our imagination … we hold 30 children in suspense, on the edge of their seats … we talk about characters and how they often point us to a new idea or a feeling … we laugh, we cry, we rise to the defence of… we are stirred to act… we imagine… we create pictures in our heads…
Of course as a parent, you are in the unique position to join all the above with an even more personal experience and snuggle time. There is nothing quite so special as snuggling on a lounge with a beautiful book and a child.
Our challenge as educators and parents is to make every week a book week and by example, give the wonderful gift of reading for pleasure to your children!
