There are lots of milestones in a child’s life. For me, watching my children learn to read has been one of the most joyful.
I always knew that a big part of my role as a mother was to pass my love of reading on to my two boys, and they’re now both well on their way down that magical path. The things they see along that journey will feed their imagination, broaden their horizons and encourage their self-discovery.
Each pack of Alphabites cereal now includes exciting new story book magnets, which are guaranteed to get everyone giggling round the breakfast table. Plus, there’s a new online Big Book Club hub featuring a ‘Book of the Month’, printable activity sheets, games and free extracts from children’s classics.
My eldest son and his cat, Tabby, are the inaugural members of our very own book club – his brother and our other cat are honorary members too. The bottom bunk is now officially the reading cave – a place to enjoy all our favourite books, old and new.
Feeling hungry? Alphabites are a great snack to eat while enjoying a good story. They’re made from five natural whole grains and a touch of coconut blossom nectar, as well as containing no refined sugar, salt, artificial colours or flavours,
One of our absolute favourite Puffin books is Dogger, by Shirley Hughes. I read it as a child, and I’ve shared it with the boys ever since they were babies. There’s just something about favourite books that makes me feel like everything is right with the world. It’s escapism, but they also inspire us and can teach us to be better people.
Encouraging your child to read isn’t just about teaching them to recognise letters, it’s about giving them the freedom to relax and blossom within a magical world, safely nestled within the pages of their book. It offers them time-out after a hectic day, but also reminds them that there’s so much more still be explored.
Limited-edition story magnets are inside special packs of Alphabites cereal now – you can find them in Tesco, Sainsbury’s , Asda, Morrisons, Waitrose, Co-op and Ocado. To become a member of BEAR and Puffin’s Big Book Club, head over here to get started!
