Tales to be taken in
WHETHER it's about pirates or princesses or dragons or dolls, there has never been a better time to share a good storybook with your child.
This year is National Year of Reading, with parents urged to take a little extra time and share a good story with their child each day.
Glennie Heights Prep/Year 1 teacher Julie Nelson said reading set the foundation for a successful education future and gave the children a sense of accomplishment.
"The children love to be read to but they also like to see themselves as readers and that's why they love it," she said.
"They are so excited and proud when they can do it - their chest puffs out with pride."
Principal Paul O'Mara said the school involvement with the National Year of Reading was focussed on reading time in each class each day.
"As the principal, I try to visit classes to occasionally read some of my favourite stories," Mr O'Mara said.
