Put a basket of books in every room. Books are easily put away if a basket is nearby. Make the reading corner cosy by using a comfortable chair or cushions to make a “reading nest”. This is the “relax and read” place. The message this sends to children is that books are to be enjoyed and are very important! They are fun too!





Barbara Morris, author of “Leading to Reading the easy way”, spent most of her career as a primary school teacher, a new entrant teacher and a specialist reading teacher for the last 26 years. When her grandson was four years old he wanted to read so Barb and her daughter searched for a resource to help them. Unable to find a suitable resource, Barb decided to research the acquisition of pre-reading skills and after seven years wrote, Leading to Reading the easy way. Barb’s book covers all the pre-reading skills your children need to know to give them a great start to reading and writing at school.
