Struggling to find the best book for your child to read?Paul MacDonald from the Children's Bookshop (Beecroft) spoke to a large gathering of staff and parents from across all grades about the huge range of quality books available for children, and adults, to read. It was heartening to hear that print is still the preferred medium through which reading is done.
Paul gave some exciting tips about ways to enthuse the reluctant reader as well as ideas for programs to run within the community that encourage the love of books. A particular focus was the importance of fathers modelling reading to their children, especially their sons.
Thank you to Mrs Hurst, Literacy Coordinator, for organising this seminar.
