As children grow older you can begin to share longer stories together.
Your child may becoming more confident and independent about reading books for themselves but it is great for children if parents and carers continue to read stories aloud as well, perhaps reading a section or chapter at bedtime.
You might sometimes share the reading if your child would like to.
You will find a mixture here; some older stories and some quite new, adventure stories and funny stories.
In this section you will find ideas for what you might talk about with each book, there are things to make and do and things to find out. We hope you enjoy them.
