Hungry Little Minds - National reading campaign

Children soak up every little bit of stimulation you can give them. It’s all the little things
that make a big difference with the development of their speech and understanding of


Everyday moments can be used to boost your child’s learning, and they are interested in
all sorts of things.


The Hungry Little Minds campaign provides lots of simple tips and activities that you
can slot into your routine and that children love:

• Kids will make a game out of almost anything. When you play with them you can see
their imaginations light up. Whether it’s I spy while on the bus, peek-a-boo at bath-time or
even a game of teddy bears’ picnic at tea-time.
• Kids love to talk about all sorts of things. It all goes in, even when they’re too young to
say much back. So just go with what they are interested in.

• Kids love it when you read with them. It all goes in. Every single word. From a book, a
magazine, even a shopping list.

where you live and help set them up nicely for school.
