There’s nothing nicer than cuddling up with your kids and a book and sharing a great story together. I’m sure that all of you have had the experience of reading a book more times than you can bear but you’ll also know how lovely it is when your child adores books and becomes a reader in their own right.

March is New Zealand Book Month – it’s the month where we celebrate books and encourage all Kiwis to get involved. Kiwis who are passionate about books, determined to share them with each other and spread the word. Telling and retelling stories, and recommending new books to read.  From friend to neighbour, school bus to sporting field, workplace to playground.

And here at Kiwi Families, we’re always keen to help promote books and reading. As part of our celebration of New Zealand Book Month, we’ve got two great new articles to help you help your kids love reading. Our early childhood expert, Jacqueline Taylor has put together some awesome ideas to help your kids love reading and suggestions to help you choose the right book for your child. And don’t forget that we’ve got a whole lot of gift ideas and reviews that can help you choose a great book.

We’ve also got some brilliant giveaways including a selection of some of the finalists from this year’s New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards.

Go on then, get your book out!

Have a great Friday!
