You probably already know that reading to your 4-5 year old is one of the most important school readiness activities that you can enjoy with your child.

In the coming months, you have a wonderful opportunity to start encouraging these early literacy skills.
In the video below, I share some fascinating Australian research results that will help you to understand how important your child’s pre-literacy experiences are.

I hope they help your child to thrive at school next year.
