I don't feel anywhere close to qualified to try and add something new to the topic, but I will say I whole heartedly agree that reading is the key to getting children interested in education. They can learn so much without even realising they are learning.
While pondering this topic, it occurred to me that I can still remember my favourite books from my time at nursery - so between 3 and 5 years old. That's a long time for any memory to stay with me, so these books must have had a deeper effect on me than I realised.
I decided to list the 5 books I still fondly remember after all this time, so if you are looking for some inspiration for something to read with your child, then you won't go far wrong starting with some of these!
1.Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
2. The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
3. The Jolly Postman by Janet and Allan Ahlberg
4. Where's Spot by Eric Hill
5. Peepo by Janet and Allan Ahlberg
That's just a small few, there is a lot of others I could have added here. I hope you enjoyed my little trip down memory lane. What were you're favourite nursery books?
