Kids swap screen time for story time
PARENTS want their children to spend more time with their heads stuck in a book as they continue the battle against screen time — and we’re here to help.
The Daily Telegraph and Australia Post are encouraging families to Raise a Reader this January, with the campaign across News Corp Australia newspapers highlighting the importance of literacy skills in kids. As part of the campaign, kids across the country will be asked to write a letter to an Australian legend of their choice with the chance to win prizes from Australia Post and News Corp.
Brothers Adrian (8) and Eli (7) Calarco from Sydney are both doing their part in the cause for improved literacy.
Adrian, will be sending his letter to associate producer of the Lego film franchise Amber Naismith, while Eli will write to soccer star Tim Cahill.
The Raise a Reader competition kicks off on Friday.
