If parents understood the huge educational benefits and intense happiness brought about by reading aloud to their children, and if every parent - and every adult caring for a child - read aloud a minimum of three stories a day to the children in their lives, we could probably wipe out illiteracy within one generation.

Mem Fox lives and breathes by these words. As well as being a bestselling author of children's books, she has been a passionate supporter of reading aloud to children for decades.

The latest edition of this classic bestseller has a brand new chapter - a chapter that follows Mem's delightful discoveries, and her joy, when she begins to read aloud to the next generation of her family: her grandchild.

With her usual humour and insights, Mem demonstrates the power of literacy by both her actions and her words.

  • Everyone should have this book

    This book gives parents an understanding of how children learn to read and the importance of reading to them from an early age. I know from experience that it can help you to assist your child to learn how to read before starting school. It should be handed to every parent as they walk out of hospital with their newborn! I will continue to give it as a gift to new parents.
