Read with me is part of our Learn with me campaign. It's full of tips and activity ideas to get your child off to a great start.
We want to encourage a love of reading in children. It not only introduces them to new words and increases their vocabulary, but it will help with their reading and language skills as they get older too. So, we've talked to early language experts and photographed real families and put together these leaflets.
There are five in the series and each one covers a different age range from birth to five years old. They're full of tips and will give you an understanding of what children like and can do.
You can read them online or print off a copy by downloading the files at the bottom of this page.
If you would like even more ideas about how you can help to develop your child's reading you can also take a look at our Read with me photo album.
