Happy House’s Lending Library is now open!!
Membership is free and forms can be found in the office.
We have already had a few books go out and the children have been very excited about looking through and choosing from the collection.
Language, a broad vocabulary and a love of reading can be one of the single most effective ways of supporting your children towards a successful start at school. Reading is the world of imagination, creativity as well as the world of information.
Reading with children needs to be one on one with a person to have real impact. Hearing a story read on the television or on an app has significantly less impact on a child’s learning as they are not able to participate. The back and forth between the reader and the listener and the reader is what makes the biggest difference! It is called ‘serve and return’.
