How To Encourage Kids To Read & Write Every Day
National Literacy Trust provides tips to parents to develop children's reading skills
Helping a child to develop their reading skills and love literacy is a real challenge, but it’s also one of the biggest and most rewarding responsibilities of parents. Reading opens a child’s eyes to the world around them, opens their imagination to worlds they have never experienced, and reveals opportunities for them that are so often closed to people that struggle to read and write.
There are many different barriers to literacy; poverty and gender inequality may stop people from being given the opportunity to learn, while geography – simply living too far from local schools or libraries – makes it too difficult for many to reach the resources that are available.
Don’t make time a barrier for your child.
To help parents develop the reading skills of their children – and make it fun – we’ve worked with the National Literacy Trust to provide tips on how to create new ways to encourage children to read everyday.
Playing board games can be great for your child’s literacy and communication skills.

Project Literacy is committed to making sure that by 2030 no child is born at risk of not being able to learn to read and write. Working with over 90 partner charities and organizations, we’re working directly with people all over the world to develop the skills they need to read and write, helping them to build opportunity and making the most of the world around them.
