Tricia Monks, TA and MKC Co-ordinator at Parc Eglos Primary in Helston, Cornwall, has see the benefits to children and families who use Reading Force.
“It has been lovely to see families sharing books together. We invite parents in for a chat, and we send the scrapbooks home with them. Some of our dads spend the best part of two years away and they’ve read on a Kindle while the kids at home read the book. Parents now realise it’s really good and worth doing. Every time a parent is preparing to deploy, I send a scrapbook and leaflet home. I think it’s brilliant, I’ve seen the benefit, and I’m doing a scrapbook with my own son. It’s having that common goal to share a book and the calmness reading together gives. I love it.”
