The next time you’re looking at books – at home, in a shop or at a library – think about what your child likes. It could be animals, trains, a special place or person.
See if you can find a book about that subject.
Sit down together and read it. Talk to them about their favourite things and why they like it. Sometimes children need to be asked questions to get chatting. Things like why, how and what.
By encouraging your child to have their own interests, you’re supporting their independence and confidence.
