News What’s in a story? We all know the importance of reading, especially for children – it expands their imagination, vocabulary and they quickly absorb all the new information given to them. But, have you thought about the importance of reading a story with someone else? At Storybook Dads we work with Dads and Mums who are not there to read a bedtime story to their child; allowing them to record themselves reading a story for their child to listen to. This gives parents the chance to strengthen their bond with their children, even when they can’t be there. It also gives the child something special to listen to whenever they might be missing that parent but, most of all, it keeps them connected through the power of storytelling.
