Any story will do

I’ve been shocked to discover that 50% of children are not read bed-time stories. This is such a shame. Some of the reasons give is that fathers are not confidence in their reading skills or the ability to give the stories a “voice”. I do not remember if I was read to at night but I was told stories and encouraged to read. I think it does not matter if you are a natural storyteller it is a shared moment between a parent and child and is that not the most important thing.

  1. Couldn’t agree more. Being read stories as a young child has such a profound influence over the rest of that child’s life, and as you said, it’s the moment between parent and child that is a key thing, that also emphasises the importance of that moment for the child.
