The Department of Education is delighted to introduce 'Never Stop Reading!' An initiative 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 more than half of the parents stop reading with their children once they start to able to read for themselves.
Research has found that there are significant positive effects of read aloud interventions on children’s learning outcomes and social and emotional development.
The Department has produced videos and factsheets for parents highlighting the vital benefits of reading at home, which can be viewed at https://www.education.wa.edu.au/neverstopreading
