Reading for Pleasure

Reading for at least 10 minutes every day is great for your child’s happiness, wellbeing and, of course, for improving their reading and writing!

Sharing a book with a child is fun! It's a time for affection, laughing and talking together – and it can also give children a head start in life and help them become lifelong readers.


Inspire everyone in your family to read every day for 10 minutes:

  • Create a routine, set a specific time each day to read that works best for your family – you could be at home or out and about!
  • Set a timer to help you all hit 10 minutes.
  • Turn off your phone or TV so there are no distractions.
  • You could pop to the library to find the perfect book, magazine or comic for you and your children.
  • If you child is an independent reader, make sure you grab your favourite book to read as well to show them how important reading is to you.
