How To Read With Your Child

Parents MUST help their children become interested in reading if they are to succeed in school. These 5 tips will make reading with your child more effective: - Hampton School Mauritius 1. Show them the cover Before reading to your child, show them the cover of the book and ask them questions about it.

Daily reading is an essential to aid your child's development in all curriculum areas.


Evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures.

Reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background.


What difference can YOU make as a parent?

You can make a huge difference! Parents are the most important educators in a child’s life – even more important than their teachers – and it’s never too early or too late to start reading together.
