At Flourish, we believe that developing a love for reading, is essential to our learner’s journey to find their calling. At the studio, our learners will participate in our D.E.A.R (Drop Everything And Read) sessions daily. They pause whatever they are working on, and take 30 mins to read a book from our library.
At home, we can encourage our learners to read — by reading to them and creating a collection of interesting books that are aligned with their reading abilities.
If you are looking for great books to encourage your children to read (or to read aloud to them), please find below our curated list for 2021.
These work well for early readers aged 6 to 10.
