Book-sharing is about using picture books with your child in a fun, interactive way.

‘Also known as 'dialogic' book-sharing, it is not simply reading to a child who listens passively, but is rather an active exchange, led by the child, and supported by an adult who engages on all levels.

Book sharing in this way has proven effects on your child’s social, emotional and cognitive development, and can improve your relationship with your child. 

The Mikhulu Trust is releasing four of its illustrated books online, for free, in its #LockDownBookShare campaign.

Watch the instruction video and then download the PDF book below to start book sharing with your child today.
