Do you remember your first childhood story? What were some of your favorite reads when you were a kid? Discovering and acquiring the taste for reading begins at a young age. According to the book Encouraging your Child to Read by Harvard Graduate School of Education, “Developing a lifelong love of reading is a foundation for success in school and happiness in life.”
Therefore, when I was recently sent the latest Storytime Magazines, my kids and I were delightfully surprised! This magazine is not like any other magazine I have seen before: no advertisements, beautiful illustrations and stories galore! What I love about this magazine is that the short stories are just long enough to get kids hooked on the reading whether they are already advanced readers or are just learning. Some titles include The Butterfly and the Rose, The Old Woman and her Pig, I want to be a Pencil Sharpener, and the Rainbow Fairies. After each story there are also a few games and activities for kids to enjoy.
Overall, a subscription to Storytime allows for my bilingual kids to read short stories in English on a more regular basis. Sometimes reading books can take too long, and now while putting my kids to bed, I have a plethora of stories to read with them! If you are interested in knowing more about Storytime the magazine can shop the magazines one by one for £4.99 or an entire subscription of 12 issues for £33.99.
