“Stories play a vital role in the growth and development of children. The books they read and the characters they get to know can become like friends. It’s also good for children to understand that books are a useful source of information and that good reading skills are important for success in their future lives.”
“My son is very quiet especially with people he doesnt know. Emma was so engaging and the session was very well structured. I couldn’t believe it when I heard him read his story. I was so proud and so impressed. In such a short class Emma had thought him to structure a story, use his imagination and gave him enough confidence to read it in front of a group.” – 22.05.2020
