Ideas to help develop a love reading include drawing, cooking, audiobooks and games linked to stories.
1. Our friends at the BookTrust have launched a brilliant website called HomeTime. You can hear Cressida Cowell reading her own How to Train a Dragon; read along with Hairy Maclary, join in the Roald Dahl quizzes, see how illustrator Ed Vere comes up with his drawings or find out how to make your own comic.
2. Want to give the kids something to help them relax that doesn't involve a screen? What about downloading for free a book from audible? There's lots to choose from and currently they are free. You can also find books in different languages.
3. The Literacy Trust has some excellent ideas on their family-zone page. They have helpfully divided their recommendations into different ages, so there should be something for all the family.
4. Are you catching up with friends and family over Facetime, Zoom or Skype? How about sharing a story together. Grandparents might really enjoy having a regular time slot where they get to read their grandchildren a story?
5. If you haven't heard of Pie Corbett, we can guarantee your teachers have. Together with a team of brilliant writers, poets and book-lovers, Pie Corbett presents radioblogging - a great daily show which includes lots of activities to join in together.
