A nationwide giveaway of ‘story starters’ courtesy of Read On Get On and Ladybird Books


Read On Get On is coalition of leading charities, teachers and businesses with a mission is to make sure that by 2025, every child is a confident reader by age 11.

To help in that effort they have partnered up with Ladybird Books and are launching a nationwide giveaway of ‘story starters’ to help families chat with their young children to develop language and communication skills.



The story starters feature much loved children’s characters, such as Peppa Pig, Ben & Holly and Topsy & Tim, in fun everyday situations that help families create stories wherever they are.

You can access all the stories on the Read On Get On website.
 
Speech and language therapist Kate Freeman said: “Studies find that if children don’t have strong language skills at age five they can get left behind when they start school and struggle to learn to read. That’s why it’s so important for adults to chat with children to help them develop the essential language skills needed to be ready to read when they enter the classroom.”
