Publisher's Summary

An essential guide for every parent and educator - all you need to know about inspiring children to read. 

Some kids refuse to read, others won’t stop. Either way, many parents question the best way to support their child’s literacy journey. 

When can you start reading to your child? How do you find that special book to inspire a reluctant reader? What can you do to keep your tween reading into their adolescent years? 

Award-winning teacher librarian Megan Daley, the passionate voice behind the Children’s Books Daily blog, has the answers to all these questions and more. She unpacks her 20 years of experience into this personable and accessible guide, enhanced with up-to-date research and firsthand accounts from well-known Australian children’s authors. 

It also contains practical tips, such as suggested reading lists and instructions on how to run book-themed activities. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site.

Great book for a parent who wants to help their kids read and fall in love with books

This book was a fabulous listen and a must have if you are wanting to have your kids read and love books.

It covers reading from babies right through to young adults and includes a mix of:
- Tips
- Stories
- Explanations of early childhood, primary and secondary school education
- Special sections from children’s authors.
- Lists of a suggested children’s books (for different age groups)

Based on listening to this book we have already changed the reading habits in our family including getting our kids their first library cards.

Well worth a download and a listen.
