Sick of screen time? Here’s how to get your kids to love reading

Moving to a new town is always challenging, especially with a newborn baby in tow.

The transition can be even trickier when English isn’t your first language.

But Katayoun Rahrovae has found comfort in weekly story time at her local library in Rockampton, Queensland. 

The language barrier didn’t stop Katayoun taking her toddler son Kasra to the sessions, where parents and children alike are encouraged to sing, dance, and read together.

“English is not our first language, and we don’t speak English at home, but he definitely enjoys it,” Katayoun says.

“He doesn’t understand the language, but he definitely understands the rhymes, because he follows the rhymes.”
