We have been very fortunate to receive a beautiful set of books from Book Trust this week as part of their nationwide campaign ‘Time To Read’. The campaign is aimed at getting families to enjoy reading together and sharing picture books.
Did you know that research has proven that children who read regularly do better in school? Reading books helps children learn spellings, how to form a sentence, understand the world and become creative and imaginative. When reading together books bring you closer together and help you bond while having fun too!
This year as part of the Time To Read campaign, every child in Reception year at school across England will receive a copy of ‘Little Monkey’ by Marta Altes. It’s a very cute story about a little monkey’s adventure in the jungle. Cody and I really enjoyed reading it together and talking about what we thought might happen next. The illustrations really bring the story to life and have some lovely details to spot.
There are 3 other gorgeous books in our bundle. My favourite is ‘Vera Jewel Is Late For School’ because I absolutely love rhyming books and the pictures in this one are such fun. Cody thinks ‘You’re Called What?!’ is hilarious so that’s definitely his favourite. The other book is called ‘I Am An Artist’ and is one I think all parents could relate to – you have to read it to find out why!
