“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” ― Stephen King
As a reading helper, I provide help and support to children in primary school with their reading, comprehension and fluency - but the main thing is to increase their confidence and interest in reading books.
This organisation has gifted one of the most rewarding roles that I've ever experienced. You can physically see and feel the child's imagination run fearlessly into a new realm and knowing that you aided this provides fulfilment like no other.
The precious experience of reading to a child and being able to transform words on a blank page into an exciting adventure creates a unique platform in which passion can be discovered. It emphasises the importance of taking on responsibility in encouraging the younger generation to appreciate, love and to connect with sources capable of fuelling their little minds.
