June 15, 2015 by Ellie Linton

It is never too soon to start reading to your child.

Reading with babies is proven to increase their language and literacy acquisition – it’s crucial for their development and to foster a life-long love of books.

Why not grab a book and get your baby off to a flying start! Have fun!
