    Bedtime stories, heroic characters, adventure, exploration and magic…

    Childhood is the perfect time to discover all these magical elements. And children’s books have all of them.

    It’s never too early for your child to be introduced to the fabulous world of books. There are so many developmental benefits of reading to and with your child from an early age. Some of them include cognitive, speech and social skills.

    Children love stories!

    They are drawn to heroic characters, adventure, exploration and magic. It’s childhood in a nutshell.

    Once children become immersed in a story they will transpose it to their play. This type of play is called imaginative play, also referred to as “pretend play” or “role play”.

    Catherine Sewell, Play Thinker in Residence at Playgroup NSW offers a few great ideas you can try to include stories in your child’s imaginative play.

    There is no such thing as a “right age” to potty train your child. Whether you decide to go nappy-free at 18 months or four years, the best decision is whatever suits you and your child. Postponing it for too long, however, can limit your child’s independence. When you decide to turn nappies into history, these tips may come in handy.
