Read Every day

In Early years, reading at least 20 minutes every day will drastically improve

your child’s reading and writing performance by the age of 15, according to

an OECD report. Do your best to dramatist reading with the special sound

effects and don’t worry about sounding silly.


Select a Book your child will enjoy

Let your child choose book that is connected to your child’s interests such

as football, jokes or space. This way, your child will be better engaged.


Point Our Authors and Illustrators

Allow your child to become familiar with the important features of the book by

reading the title, the name of the author and illustrator. This will encourage

your child to develop their personal favorite author and recognize their

work immediately.


Read the  Same Books

Don’t worry about rereading the same books, focusing one week on one

aspect such as pictures, the following week on reading the story, weeks or

months later focusing on the vocabulary and later on punctuation and so



Make reading Engaging and Interactive

When reading to pre-reception children, engage your child by staging

questions about what you’ve read, how characters feel, and what might come

next. Singing songs with your child will help develop language skills.


Avoid sitting at the computer, checking your mobile, or doing household

chores.Look directly at your child to encourage full engagement.


Discuss Stories

When you give your child the opportunity to discuss the story, its characters

and settings, it establishes important foundation for the critical thinking skills

that are vitally important during the child’s life.


Read  Non-fiction

As well as stories, choose books that will fascinate your pre-kindergarten child

by the world around them. Non-fiction books give opportunities to your child

to learn about the world around them.Books about animals, outer space, and

cars, trucks and machines will entice them to love books.


Establish good reading habits

Be a great role model. It’s important your child sees you read a variety of

text. This will help your child view reading positively.


Encourage  Drawing

Early writing and drawing using plenty of crayons and markers will instill the love of writing and drawing tools.


Incorporate toys

Play dough and toys encourages the development of agility, nimbleness and

dexterity in your child’s fingers that will be vitally important as your child
