Reading at home is a very important part of a child’s development. It creates a connection between the home and school, and allows students the opportunity to practice new reading skills such as fluency and comprehension.

Here are some tips for integrating reading into our daily family activities:

• Read bedtime stories

• Play a board game

• Visit your local library

• Read a recipe and cook something together!

• Create a comfy reading space in your home

• Put your child in charge of reading the grocery list at the store.


Choose Books That Are At An Appropriate Reading Level For Your Child

Put up a finger every time your child does not know a word. If you have put up more than five fingers before the end of the page, this book is too hard for your child.

Keep plenty of reading materials in your home: books, magazines, newspapers, and comic books. Children enjoy having a variety of reading materials!

Isma Pasha, the devout orphaned daughter of a jihadi fighter, has raised her younger sister and brother in the largely Asian neighborhood of Wembly. Eamonn, the son of the British Home Secretary (a secularlized Muslim) has grown up in posh Holland Park. His family has the power to help hers, and their friendship leads inexorably to a dramatic political crisis.

This is a beautifully-written, angry, romantic novel that succeeds in being both timely and timeless.
