I tell stories in Vietnamese and read to my children in English.  I only started reading English after receiving Better Beginnings.

One mother reads with her four year old every afternoon after school now.  She said without these books, they would not have any to read.

I think it’s been a wonderful initiative.  I feel sure it’s going to benefit both the children and parents and develop links with the library.

Better Beginnings gave me confidence. I know reading is an everyday tool and teaching my children will help them be more successful in life.
