Reading is fun. It’s also a key skill that helps us to learn and to live our lives – so starting to read is an exciting and important stage in children’s development. As with so much of their learning, children practise many of the skills they need for reading over a long period, starting years before they actually try to make sense of printed words.
They do this through a variety of activities, some of which might seem to have little or nothing to do with books.
