Online Event

During this webinar, our panel of educators will discuss how books provide opportunities for communication and building a love of language and literacy.

Children read books in early childhood settings and at home. These can be solitary moments or opportunities for interacting with a caregiver or teachers in a small or large group of peers. All these scenarios can foster a love for books and sharing stories.

What we will explore:

  • How parents can engage in and enjoy the reading experience with their child
  • How books offer multiple learning opportunities
  • How books connect with other play experiences to help children make sense of the world around them
  • How reading is linked to maths, literacy, science, physical development and more

Join us to hear from the panel, ask questions and share your reading experience with your child.
