Moms play a fundamental role in their children’s literacy development. And what better way to commit to this role than to pledge to read or share a story with your child for 15 minutes every day? You can be one of five people to win a share in R90 000 worth of books when doing so!

The Nal’ibali reading-for-enjoyment campaign launched the pledge drive on 1 June and are inviting all parents to commit to 15 minutes of story time with their kids on their website at www.nalibali.org or www.nalibali.mobi

If the group succeeds in getting 90 000 pledged minutes, Cambridge University Press will donate books to the value of R90 000 to five lucky people. The drive is part of the campaign’s Read to Me: Every Day initiative.

“Reading to children can’t just happen just once or twice. We need to read to our children every day if we want them to learn that reading can be an enjoyable and entertaining activity,” says Arabella Koopman from Nal’ibali. “Knowing this is what inspires them to want to read - and then to read more and more. This is how they establish a satisfying, lifelong relationship with books and reading. And, in addition to this benefit, there are lots of research studies to show that the more children read at home, the better they do at school.”

If you pledge your 15 daily minutes, you can read any of the lovely stories in Nal’ibali’s vast selection on their and SuperMom’s websites and make use of any of their storytelling tips for children of all ages.
