Mama OWL Blog: “A child who reads will be an adult who thinksˮ

“A child who reads will be an adult who thinksˮ

Thursday, 22 January 2015

There is something in the simplicity of picking up a book and travelling wherever your mind takes you that makes it one of the best ways to escape the pressures of everyday life. Pick up a book, turn the pages and you can be miles away - without having to leave your bed, or comfy spot on the sofa. I adore reading for these reasons, and have worked hard to make sure that my children read even if they don't do it as much as I would like.

I am delighted that E has embraced my love of my books and is equally as fascinated by stories of far off worlds, of wild adventures, and excitement and peril. There is magic held within the pages of books, particularly for children, and I love that she likes to lose herself in them as much as I do. Last week, 4-year-old miss E earned the accolade of Champion Learner in her class by reaching level 6 in her reading. Now she has got the hang of it, she is absolutely flying and making the most amazing progress.

We are so proud of how hard she works at school, she really enjoys being there and she always tells us so animatedly about what she has learned that day. I love her enthusiasm for learning and I really hope she keeps that as she grows up. I will try my hardest to encourage her too, by listening to her read, reading stories with and to her and also by completing challenges such as the Summer Reading Challenge at the local library.
