Why giv­ing your chil­dren the best pos­si­ble start in life is so im­por­tant:

1. Play­ing, talk­ing and read­ing helps lit­tle brains grow! It can give kids a bet­ter start in life and make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence to their health and hap­pi­ness in the fu­ture.

2. Play­ing, talk­ing and read­ing brings you and your lit­tle one closer, which helps them be­come more so­cia­ble, so they’ll make friends more eas­ily too.

3. Play­ing, talk­ing and read­ing can make your ev­ery­day life eas­ier by turn­ing your daily rou­tine into ac­tiv­i­ties you can share so you don’t need to make lots of ex­tra time to fit it in.

4. Play­ing, talk­ing and read­ing is all about en­joy­ing your time to­gether. Ev­ery­one can do it and you don’t need lots of toys or ex­tra equip­ment.

5. Play­ing, talk­ing and read­ing helps lit­tle ones learn to play for longer be­fore they get bored or frus­trated. For a chance
