In our Point of View, Shelley O’Carroll makes a strong case for parents and caregivers to make small changes to their parenting to build vitally important language foundations for our children. After all, young children spend two thirds of their waking hours at home and with caregivers. We introduce a new, simple-to-use phone app called CareUp which guides parents of children aged 4-5. As always, we share the story of one of our literacy champions: Erina Muir talks about her journey with our STELLAR programme, and we celebrate an important STELLAR family. Sharing books and the love of books with children is essential to building literacy, so please read about and support our Storybook Fund!
