Why we love to read 

Here in Nursery Blue we love to read, it is such an important part of childhood development. We read almost every day, and help children to develop their book and reading skills. When reading we encourage children to handle books carefully, hold it up the correct way, and turn the pages one at a time. We encourage children to identify the words and the pictures and we love to talk about stories. When we talk about stories we encourage children to talk about the characters and what happened in the story as well as joining in with key phrases.
