For the prolific reader, it might be difficult to imagine a time before books. However, it certainly isn’t the case that we were all born with an inherent love of literature. In fact, the reading journey is something which is very personal and different for every individual.

Some children will quickly master the skills required and become veracious readers who devour stories from an early age. However, others will find it much more difficult to learn to love reading, and their journey might not be so straight forward.
