How to help your children with reading.  Of all the support you can give your child, the most important job you’ll probably do is helping with reading. That’s because learning to read is best taught on a one-to-one basis, so giving your child a bit of shared reading time every day will make a big difference. They should be reading a range of genres and reading out loud to enable them to develop expression, intonation, confidence and fluidity in their reading. This should not stop even when a child becomes an independent reader. Reading together helps build up background general knowledge which is key to understanding texts. If you don't know anything about the subject you are reading, it makes it difficult to understand the text. 

Here is a recommended list of reading books. A guide to how to read with your child.
