Reading is food for the brain! Children who have a favourite book are more likely to become confident readers. Having books at home makes a real difference to babies’ and children’s love of stories and books. This gives them a flying start in learning to talk and read, and extends their language – children’s vocabulary at age five is the biggest predictor of how well they do later in life.
The Dolly Parton Imagination Library (DPIL) was set up to increase the number of children’s books in families’ homes. Each child receives a free book every month from birth to five, delivered directly to them at their home address.
