Read it, daddies!

As someone that likes to put words in an order that sometimes resembles a coherent sentence or rhyme, I’m certainly guilty of not reading many books. I read, I read a lot. Be it an article, a forum, blog or other online rambling but I just haven’t found the time recently to sit and read a good (or even bad) book for myself.

What I do make time for, however, is reading aloud to my son. Something I’ve done since before he knew what I was even reading about. Something I’ll continue to do until he starts to fully read books himself. And something that ReaditDaddy feels very passionate about.

Today they’ve launched their campaign to get more parents reading to their kids and the statistical findings behind the campaign are really quite sad; with a third of parents questioned admitting to never reading to their offspring.

So turn off Peppa Pig for a second. Stop them from jumping on the furniture. Open up that book that aunty bought them last christmas and just Read it, Daddy!

  1. Cheers for getting behind this (I know I don’t have to preach to the converted) – Let’s make 2013 the turnaround year for parents reading aloud to their kids and getting their kids into books! Switch off the telly, put down the iPad and pick up a good book! There’s never been a better time!
