Never Stop Reading!

The Department of Education recently introduced an initiative called Never Stop Reading!, aimed at encouraging parents of children from Years 3 to 6 to continue reading aloud with their children as they progress through Primary School. Research has shown that earlier cessation of reading aloud fails to take advantage of the "significant positive effects".

To find out more about the initiative and research findings, go to the Never Stop Reading! webpage at www.education.wa.edu.au/neverstopreading.

A research finding of interest: Children continue to enjoy being read to beyond their early years, and most were disappointed when their parents stopped.
