"Lila, newly 6, trying out Roald Dahl in the WH Smith Bookstore, Paris. You can hear the self-correction, and sounding out of the words. It really was a point of fluidity for her. She's now read a bunch of Roald Dahl's, Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Narnia series and thanks to a care package from Ambassador Andy Griffiths - 3 of his great books! Because of her early reading and love of learning - she has picked up French so fast and has begun reading in French, albeit with some difficulty, but with interest and passion: truly with a love of learning. Instilling the love of reading in children doesn't just increase their vocabulary i.e: "lavatory" - it equips them with confidence and pride, and what better gift to pass on to our children? Please donate to Indigenous Literacy Foundation and share this video. Thank you so much for supporting the great work of ILF. In love and peace"
“Parents, carers, elders and brothers and sisters are reading to their younger ones. It’s great to see a big mob of children sitting around one older person who is reading to them. It also helps with bonding and attachment with the little ones. It’s a fantastic resource.
