Reading to your child has so many benefits, from helping you bond to showing them that you're interested in spending time with them. But it also provides you with the time to teach them important literacy skills, as well as the opportunities to develop their social skills and knowledge.

To help your little one and support them in the early stages of education, choose a variety of books for them to read, from easy rhyming books that they can help repeat the words, to ones with deeper meanings such as love and friendship. Check out our variety of books that are perfect for children aged between three and four.
