Let your Childs Mind Escape
A child’s thoughts and emotions are allowed to come into play as they enter a world of magic, adventure, characters, fun or just plain old silly slapstick behaviour. After a day of activities and school, reading a book can bring your child closer to sleep.
Regular reading before bed can creates a powerful sleeping routine and over time; it becomes easier to support the cultivation of good-quality sleep for your child.
As highlighted above, listening to stories stimulates, it encourages children to switch on their imagination and create their own understanding of what’s being read to them.
