Product description

Product Description

If parents understood the huge educational benefits and intense happiness brought about by reading aloud to their children, and if every parent – and every adult caring for a child – read aloud a minimum of three stories a day to the children in their lives, we could probably wipe out illiteracy within one generation.

Mem Fox lives and breathes by these words. As well as being a bestselling author of children's books, she has been a passionate supporter of reading aloud to children for decades.

The latest edition of this classic bestseller has a brand new chapter – a chapter that follows Mem's delightful discoveries, and her joy, when she begins to read aloud to the next generation of her family: her grandchild.

With her usual humour and insights, Mem demonstrates the power of literacy by both her actions and her words.

About the Author

Mem is passionate about literacy and its development. Half her life, until the end of 1996, was spent teaching literacy studies at Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia. She is also internationally known as the author of many books for children including Possum Magic, Wombat Divine, Wilfrid Gordon MacDonald Partridge, Koala Lou and Time for Bed. Mem Fox is a fulltime writer and a highly regarded international literacy consultant. Mem has been presented with several major awards including the Dromkeen Medal for distinguished services to children's literature, an Advance Australia Award for her outstanding contribution to Australian literature and an AM in the 1993 Australia Day Honours awards.
