How to boost your children’s love of learning? Read and play with them this Christmas!

with recommendations of books and games by French Bookshop Librairie La Page

Parents and in fact any family member play a huge part in instilling a love of learning in children! And what better time than Christmas where children receive presents, to enjoy playing and reading together as a family. So our partner la Librairie La Page has compiled a list of recommendations for French books and games.

Why is it important to read?

Reading a book with a story sparking the imagination, develops children’s language skills! Not only will they be captivated by it, but if you make it interactive, they will also ask and answer questions! So reading will undoubtely build your child’s vocabulary, boost their fluency and spelling skills.

Why is it important to play?

The time has long gone when educators and parents believed that to learn, children just needed to passively listen. Little ones learn through play, older children learn with engaging activities which encourage critical thinking. When playing with your child, there should be a lot of social interaction and therefore many opportunities for vocabulary building and talking!

Lastly your children will cherish the fun moments they spend with you. As parents you are not only nurturing a love of learning and discovery, but you are also bonding in a way that you will always remember!
