Books Books Books!
I have always been a bit of a children's story book addict. Luckily I have an excuse for my enormous children's book library as I have two small children who love a good story. We love getting lost in a book at the end of the day, it is really special. I heard recently that McDonald's were doing a Happy Readers book campaign to get children reading, and was shocked to read that 1 in 5 children aged 5-8 say they don't own a book. I hope this helps to change this, reading stories with your children gives helps them in so many ways. It can ignite a life-long love of reading, encourages imagination and creativity and expands knowledge as well as being precious time shared together. As well as this don't forget your local libraries (it's free to join!) , local book hut's and charity shops are all great places to find books too!
