Reading should be a shared experience between parent and child in order to ensure a love of books from an early age.
Ensure your child sees you reading regularly whether it’s a book, a newspaper or a magazine as it will instil a love of reading for pleasure.
Let your child help you choose the books you read together. If your child doesn’t like a book, don’t force him or her to read it. Let them put it down and come back to it after reading something else.
Read in a place that’s comfortable for both you and your child. During and after reading a book talk about the story and take time to discuss the ideas in the book in order to ensure a greater understanding.
Give your child plenty of praise while reading. If they have a favourite book or author let them read them again and again but also introduce an author or book similar in style. Our Like-for-Like feature (see below) will help here.
Parents can enjoy online-time with children as much as watching TV with them. Specialist websites like Lovereading4kids are not only fun for online browsing, but have developed specialist tools such as the facility to download free Opening Extracts and search author Like-for-Like functions.
Many of today’s parents are not aware that there are whole rafts of childrens’ books written by great authors especially for them. These days, children don’t have to be forced to read Dickens or Bronte. Harry Potter is not alone!
Above all, make reading fun.

Many very bright children find learning to read English very hard. That can be surprising until you understand what’s going on. The truth is that their intelligence often leads them down the wrong path when they first try to read. As the text gets harder they will find progress more and more difficult. So they end up on a reading plateau, with lots of wild guessing and a collapsing self-confidence. If you guide them back onto the right path, they will usually progress fast.

There are actually multiple possible reasons for reading difficulty, but what I have described above is the most common. We call it Optilexia.

The key to getting progress with reading for a child is to understand what is causing the difficulty. That might be Optilexia or eye-tracking difficulty or Irlen Syndrome or one of the other 7 causes of difficulty we see the patterns of routinely with the children we help.

Once you understand a child’s reading difficulty, guiding the child to success usually becomes fairly easy.

So, at the heart of the Easyread System is a process of trying to understand the patterns shown by each child. We then make sure we apply the right help to get the child reading confidently. It normally takes around 6-9 months to achieve that.

It can be quite complex, but we have had years of experience helping thousands of children, so there are not many things left we have not seen! And if we don’t succeed we do not charge for our help.

Learning to read is probably the most critical educational step in every child’s life. So we focus hard on doing everything we can to make it go the right way. English is a very tricky language to learn to read, so just going with your intuition on how to help does not always work out well. One in five English-speaking children cannot read by the age of 11.

Never forget manners

Whatever happened to ‘manners’?
Now how many times have we heard that? Well, they are still there and this excellent book takes children back to the values we hold dear, but which sadly have become shrouded in dust and grime.
Well done Gillian and all at Poetree Creations.

A truly inspiring childrens book
24 September 2010
I have read this book to my grandchildren who enjoyed the very well wriiten verses. This book not only brings laughter it also educates those who read it. I have no hesitation in recommending this book to young and old who I know will get a great deal of pleasure and humour this book will bring to all who read it.

I love it
24 September 2010
My two grandaughters aged just 5 years and almost 4 years love me reading this book to them, It is a very easy to read book, and very easy to understand The children also love all the pictures of the animals especially the monkey on Mind your P’S and Q’S On page 17. A book you can just pick up and read for whatever length of time you have eg 10mins. Altogether a very good book for children, The best I have bought in a long time
