We have had a wonderful sock monkey mascot made for us by the lovely Emma. A photo of him reading a book in our book corner is above. We've been trying to come up with a name for him. Any suggestions?
Reading to a sibling or a teddy bear (or other soft toy) is a great way to get children reading more. The toy option works particularly well if a child is concerned about making a mistake, as our cuddly friends are very forgiving. Even as children get older they still benefit from being read to, so as half term is ending take the time to snuggle up together with a book. Happy reading!
