Bookseed: Growing Readers reading guide 2019

Reading is for everyone. It doesn't matter if you don’t read much yourself or if you don't feel confident with language. You can look at the pictures with your baby and point out what's happening in the story. Bookseed is all about families enjoying books together, starting children on a lifelong journey with reading.

"It's never too early to start reading to your baby. Even if they don't understand the words, reading has many benefits. The sound of your voice and the rhythm of the words will help soothe you both and deepen the bond between you."

Bookseed is funded by the JP McManus Benevolent Fund, which supports local community initiatives and non-profit organisations throughout the mid-west of Ireland.
