Just completed our last session of the Early Reading Together® programme in Greymouth. A wonderful group of parents all ready to practice some new tips and tricks for reading with their children. Thanks to Anthony Hunter and the Grey District Library for hosting this final session.
Verity Kennedy Thanks Kate and Tracey for a great course. We are looking forward to spending some time at the library.

Tracey Hutt and I ran the Early Reading Together® programme in Greymouth with 14 eager parents and great support from Anthony Hunter at the Grey District Library. One parent commented: "I have more ideas for how to keep us both engaged in reading – expressions, singing, actions, ‘doing’ books".
