I still have large amount of my kids books from when they were small. I love reading them to my grandkids. They think my own Dick and Jane books are " crazy".

My mum used to read to me every night ...and started my reading skills off before i hit reception ! Gave me such a head start on the other children ....

Never too old to be read to

Yes! Yes!! Yes!!!
