'Shared Reading is where the language beats its way through the book, inspires children and motivates them to want to read.' - Jill Eggleton
Key Links Shared Reading books provide a source of literature-quality text for beginning readers. They are language-rich, humorous and filled with lively, rhythmical, rhyming text that work best for shared reading. They also provide the opportunity for teacher-led demonstrations of reading concepts, skills and strategies, in context.
