Reading harnesses many positive benefits, no matter your age!
Reading is a much more complex task for the human brain than you would think – reading strengthens brain connections and even builds new connections.
Reading will not only improve children’s vocabulary and language skills, but it will also help with their concentration, imagination and teaching of the world in which they live.
And of course, reading is fun. So let all your children, nursery age and beyond, get lost in the magical world of books!
