  • Read to your heart's content. Reading can help you experience the joy of flying, the marvel of magic, the art of kissing and can take you to places, that you have never been to or could never even have imagined.The more you read, the better you learn to think, to imagine, to create, to speak, to write and to have insight.

Sharing the joy of reading with your parents

  • Your parents must have favourite books of their own; either books that they have read recently or books that they read when they were your age or younger. Talk to them and find out about the joy that reading has brought them. Ask your parents to:
  • Name their favourite book.
  • Write down other title(s) that they have read.
  • Say where the stories are set.
  • Write down the names of some of the main characters of the books.
  • Draw up a list of any THREE good characters (heroes) and any THREE bad characters (villains).
  • Write next to their names, what it is that makes them good or bad characters.
Heroes Reason
Villains Reason

You could perhaps read one of the books that your parents read at your age. You might be pleasantly surprised!

You could share one of your books with your parents. You might surprise them!

  • Remember that reading is an important life skill. It is food for your brain, helping your brain to grow. YOU ARE WHAT YOU READ! This might even be a way of showing your parents how you have matured!
