Children who read regularly or are read to by their parents develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge, have higher test scores and better understand other cultures than children who do not read.
The Beast from the East has brought Siberian weather to Ireland and on 1st March all schools will be closed.
Don’t forget that 1st March is World Book Day!
Over the last 22 years, World Book Day has become firmly established as Ireland’s biggest annual event promoting the enjoyment of books and reading. So why not take this opportunity to read stories all together in different languages? Why not hold a multilingual reading marathon with friends and neighbors? Or a role play game linked to your favorite book or character? If you have ideas on how to encourage children in reading in more than one language in the home, share them with our community, by posting below!
Happy World Book Day!
