The more you read, the more you'll know

I love reading and really hope that my children experience the joy of escaping into the pages of a good book. I have been passionate about introducing books to Little Miss A and Baby E and this page collects some of the books we’ve read and games we’ve played. As a starting point, you might like to read my post rounding up some tips for encouraging reading in children.
