Still need a reason to enter? Read on to find out why it’s so important to pencil in some reading time, not just on Father’s Day, but every day.


Pull up a cosy chair. It’s time to read! 

Many parents we’ve spoken to admit that they don’t read to their kids as much as they would like. Just one generation ago, reading was a lot more common, and you’d often find households quietly reading at night rather than watching TV. Now there are iPads, YouTube and apps and competing for our attention instead. Too often, modern ‘quiet time’ involves screens, not books.

Well, we’re here to help bring books back to the spotlight, where they belong! There are so many benefits of reading with our children including:

Improved literacy skills: Reading with children helps them recognize letters, words, and sentences. It enhances their reading fluency, comprehension skills, and overall literacy proficiency, setting a strong foundation for their academic success.

Encourages a love of reading: Regular reading with children fosters a love of books and reading. It cultivates a lifelong habit of reading for pleasure, which opens up endless opportunities for personal growth, learning, and entertainment.

Cognitive development: Reading stimulates the brain and promotes critical thinking skills. It enhances problem-solving abilities, increases creativity, and improves memory retention and concentration.

Imagination and creativity: Reading sparks the imagination, taking children on exciting adventures and opening up new worlds. It stimulates their creativity, allowing them to think outside the box, dream big, and explore their big ideas.

Building a strong parent-child bond: Reading together creates special memories and helps strengthen the emotional connection between parents and children. It encourages open communication and quality time spent together.

One of the easiest ways to keep the love of reading growing strong is to rotate your reading material often. A trip to the library every month is a fun outing for little ones (our local library has an epic cubby house and large cushions that entertain my daughter for hours).

Purchasing a few new books, especially for special occasions like Christmas, Birthdays, Easter, and Father’s Day makes a lovely treat for your little bookworms too, and will foster the excitement to read.

Be sure to put your name down to win one of these prize packs. You never know – the winner could be you!

The Father’s Day books will make a great addition to your bookshelf and the Spot the Dog plush will easily become your child’s favourite toy.
