The Best Tales for Tots

We all know that sitting and reading with your child is beneficial to their education, but did you know the positive repercussions can last up to fifteen years of age? According to BBC Education, children who are interacted with by parents from an early age, and helped to read, can gain reading ages well ahead of their peers into teen-hood.

With this research in mind, let’s take a look at the best books for your bundle of joy. These publications could help improve their reading age for up to ten years in advance!

The Shape of my Heart by Mark Sperring and illustrated by Alys Paterson is a very cute book that you and your child will enjoy looking at.
