Meet Megan Daley - Chermside Library
Development of literacy skills begins at birth and continues throughout childhood and beyond. The aim of this session is to empower parents/carers and educators of 0-10 year olds to take an active role in encouraging literacy development. It is less a talk about the mechanics of reading and more a talk about fostering a lifelong love of reading and language and the vital role of the parent/carer and educators in this.
Award-winning teacher librarian, author and blogger Megan Daley answers questions including: how to raise a reader; the importance of reading aloud; reading habits and how to build them into your life; the best books for various age ranges; the early years of school literacy demystified and how you can best support literacy development at home. Join Megan as she discusses her new book Raising Readers: How to nurture a child’s love of books.
Books will be available for purchase on the day, or bring your copy from home for Megan to sign.
