The Reading Hour will soon be with us...
Next Tuesday, 16 August, between 6 and 7pm, kids all over the country will be diving into books. The KBR team will be doing the very same! So why not join us and snuggle up on the couch with a mountain of books?
Sharing a book with your child for 10 minutes a day, an hour a week is our aim for The Reading Hour on the 16 August 2016. It may not always be possible to share a book at bedtime, but if we can manage 10 minutes most nights, children have the best chance of becoming a good reader, with all the social and educational benefits that brings.
So, if you can't make the 6 - 7pm timeslot, why not organising an hour of leisure reading in your classroom or library? National Ambassador Magda Szubanski will be reading up a storm, too!
