On Thursday it was World Book Day, and in this week’s newspaper review Tara Somers from Home-Start East Suffolk joins us to tell us why it should be more than just dressing up.

“The reality around World Book Day is around the love of reading and children’s literacy, certainly early literacy which is something that is really, really important,” she says.

“In England, although we’ve seen lots of improvements in the last few years around children’s literacy we’re one of the world European countries around that… But actually books are so lovely, they’re such an important part of your routine, certainly in the evening.”

Tara and Matt Hann also discuss the benefits of cooking with your children, and Tara shares some of the ways Home-Start East Suffolk are helping families.
