Sign up to your local library and regulary visit, make it part of your routine.

Reward your child with a trip to the bookshop to choose their own book.

Listen to audio books or podcast stories. 

Read aloud to your child. 

Share a book by taking turns to read a page.

Collect Magazines/brochures/sports news that might interest your child. 

Try to read different genres and books by different authors. 

Read 'too many book' by the same author.

Memorise a short or funny poem.
