The Premiers' Reading Challenge shows that there’s a book for every child.
A new love of reading
In his first ever Premiers' Reading Challenge, Year 1 Dingley Primary School student Aaryan surpassed his goal of 30 books for his age group. He also developed a whole new vocabulary.
Aaryan’s first language is Tamil, and he learned Korean until he was almost four-years-old. Reading books is an immense benefit for Aaryan.
Mother Sangeetha says reading lots of books has definitely set up her son for lifelong literacy skills.
‘I'm happy he picked up a good habit of reading books from the Reading Challenge,’ she says. ‘Now he doesn't need any motivation. He just does it’.
Among Aaryan’s favourite books are Anh Do’s Weirdo Series and Diary of a 6th Grade Ninja series by Marcus Emerson.
His new interest in reading is continuing even though the annual reading competition is drawing to a close on 6 September.
‘I used to have to motivate him to go to the library but now it’s the other way around.’
