Helping you read with your child

Reading with your child is one of the most important things you can do to develop your child's ability to read, write and build skills for starting school. Let's Read supports you in reading aloud with your child. It helps you and your child develop a love of books, share rhymes, stories and songs, and spend special time together.

Resources on the Let's Read website include reading tips sheets and book suggestion sheets for children aged 0-5 years.
