Reading Diaries – English version

Improve your home/school links by offering parents clear, simple advice on how to support their children’s reading at home. As well as advice on asking questions, our diary’s unique four-star feedback system helps parents to decide how well their child talked about a book, understood the ideas in it, and read the text aloud.

The diaries are also available in seven community languages – Arabic, French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian and Somali.
