...and an­other thing

NT News - - OPINION -

ONE of the great­est gifts we can give our chil­dren is a love of read­ing and writ­ing.

High lev­els of lit­er­acy are con­sis­tently linked with bet­ter so­cial, eco­nomic and health out­comes.

That’s why ini­tia­tives such as our Raise a Reader cam­paign are so im­por­tant. It’s de­signed to get kids think­ing about what mat­ters to them, ask­ing ques­tions and see­ing writ­ing not just as a home­work task but as an im­por­tant and en­joy­able life skill.

And there are also chances to win great prizes, so sit down with your kids and get scrib­bling to­day.
