Word Up!

When my kids were in nursery aged 2, we were sent home with a reading book. For them to read. My husband and I thought it was ridiculous and pushy and didn’t bother.

Don’t get me wrong, I was huge into reading to them – from the age of 6 months. And they always loved it. It was the only time – apart from sleeping, when they were quiet and sat still. But they were 2. 2! Why on earth did we need to start pushing them to read by themselves at that age???

You see Ralph Lauren has launched a Childrens Literacy Program to promote literacy in association with the charity Book Trust. Read More…
