Let's Read - The Australian Government's Call to Families of Young Children

<a href="/articles/lets-read-the-australian-governments-call-to-families-of-young-children">Let&#039;s Read - The Australian Government&#039;s Call to Families of Young Children</a>

A National Early Literacy Campaign launched this week in Australia aims to see all Australian children gain the foundation skills for language, literacy, and ultimately, learning success. Let’s Read is an Australian Government initiative developed by Royal Children’s Hospital’s Centre for Community Child Health, to be implemented by Murdoch Children’s Research Institute and The Smith Family. The campaign delivers this important message - reading with children aged 0-5years is probably the single-most important activity parents can do with their children to enhance their child’s future ability to read and write.

Hours of Treasured Repetitive Reading with our Children

<a href="/blogs/martinaungle/2012/01/16/hours-of-treasured-repetitive-reading-with-our-children">Hours of Treasured Repetitive Reading with our Children</a>

Our family was camping on the NSW South Coast last week, which is always a great time to do very little apart from swimming, fishing and eating, and reading – especially those books you’ve wanted to read for ages and haven’t had the time. One afternoon, just back from the beach, I looked across at the rest of the family, and they were all reading books they had been given for Christmas ... What struck me was that the books our kids were reading were ones they hadn’t read before, which was pretty unusual – even for our 14-year-old ... For our kids, repetitive reading was at its height when they were first starting to talk. Read full article

I’ve been infatuated with reading ever since I can remember. Not always fine literature: I had a drawer full of Phantom comics when I was about seven, which I would pore over by torchlight after lights out ... So how is it that my kids would do pretty much anything to avoid having to read a book? Read full article

A Child's Question to the Prime Minister

<a href="/blogs/sarahpietrzak/2011/07/20/a-childs-question-to-the-prime-minister">A Child&#039;s Question to the Prime Minister</a>

A few years back I had the privilege of teaching a literacy class in front of Mr John Prescott, the Acting Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. I was co-ordinating the running of a summer literacy camp for children who were deemed as 'struggling'. Having the camp swarming with various staff from Downing Street for days in advance, you can imagine what a high pressure occasion it was ... And one child asked a question I won’t ever forget the answer to ... Read full article

I spend time reading with and to my son. Together we have climbed a faraway tree, we have fought with wizards and dragons, we have visited secret gardens and dived with dolphins and whales. Read full article
