Reading stories to help toddlers develop essential skills for school

A recent study has shown that an increasing number of children are starting school without being able to communicate or carry out tasks such as going to the toilet, tying shoelaces or brushing teeth. BookTrust has put together a booklist to help children ages 2-4 develop these essential everyday skills. Find out more and view the booklist

BookTrust has also produced a Great Book Guide that highlights 100 books for children from 0-11.
