‘once you learn to read, you will forever be free’

Recommended Reading List

I often have mummies complain their child has no interest in reading. The first question I ask them ‘when was the last time they saw YOU pick up a book?’

Children are imitators, especially in the early years. We know that reading is knowledge, knowledge is power. To be a better mother, person, employer whatever it is you are trying to accomplish, reading is the foundation.

Reading like any habit, even in small daily increments, will do you wonders. Get lost in a good book and a cup of tea, it will nourish your soul.
