Let’s Read with Popitha

I love stories and my children love stories. Stories in the morning, stories after lunch and stories before bedtime. Stories play such an important part in a child’s life and stories before bedtime play an even more important part of the daily routine. It indicates calm time and that’s its nearly time for their little eyes to shut very soon. It is also a very magical and special time to share with your child; A moment for the two or three of you to spend together with no interruptions, a precious gem in this extremely busy and fast moving world we live in.

Stories can come to life for children, it helps with their thought processes, and it can also serve as a teaching tool for everyday life skills and scenarios that need to be learnt or approached sensitively.
