    on her own So to encourage Olivia Caroline made a book using photos of the family and it was a real hit Olivia carried around the My family book all the time she wouldn t put it down Caroline explains I noticed that she was starting to recognise the words as we had read it so many times and one day I spotted my younger two year old son reading the book to his teddy carefully pointing to the words as he said them he was word perfect too Turning the idea into a business Turning an idea into a business is not that easy Caroline was confident that she had a good idea and despite searching the internet could not find anyone producing reading books for children that used personal photos and the correct text font for early readers Lots of her friends wanted her to make books for their children but she knew that they needed to look like proper books and not home made if she was ever going to sell them Then Caroline met an old friend who happens to run a design agency for a coffee one day and she offered to help Between them they came up with the simple but educationally based design for the books A year was spent setting up the company finding a professional printer prepared to work with her and the website designer and developing the love2read concept Caroline explains I felt as though I was on a very steep learning curve and I had to take it one step at a time but I was determined to get this business off the ground despite all the problems and setbacks Fortunately she had lots of support and encouragement from her husband friends family and local business support networks and finally launched the website to coincide with her son starting full time school Caroline comments There is so much to do setting up a business I had no idea what was involved I now understand why so many struggle to even start trading a good idea is only the starting point Running a business I launched the business and just assumed rather naively that I could sit back and people would buy books It quickly dawned on Caroline that although she d successfully conquered the first steep learning curve involved in setting up a business there was an even tougher one ahead selling the product A lot of hard work and determination has resulted in a thriving business for Caroline and her team The love2read site has recently been revamped and books are sent as far away as Australia and the US Caroline says I m delighted that love2read has grown over the years and thrilled that there are thousands of love2read books being read by children all over the world Olivia was the inspiration for love2read if she hadn t been born with Down s syndrome I would never have started the business which gives me so much satisfaction and has helped inspire so many children with and without special needs to start reading books for pleasure To find out more about World Down Syndrome Day please follow this link and take 2 minutes to watch the video attached Saatchi Saatchi Italy have created this wonderful new ad for World Down Syndrome Day in which 15 people with Down syndrome respond to a future mom giving her a better idea of what to expect the joys and the challenges when her son arrives Published in Reading Blog Read more Tuesday 11 March 2014 09 10 Parents urged to read the bedtime story on a tablet Recent research has suggested that parents should turn to smartphones iPads and Kindles to get young children interested in reading amid concerns that growing numbers or infants are rejecting books The National Literacy Trust reports that Technology is playing an increasingly large role in children s reading and in the last year the use of tablet computers by 5 to 15 year olds has increased three fold 14 to 42 and 28 of three to four year olds use a tablet computer Their research has found that technology can have a new and important role to play in encouraging very young children to read Almost three quarters of under fives have access to different computers and smart phones in the home and the trust insist that it should be exploited as a basis for reading Nursery leaders have responded by warning that exposure to technology at a young age risks damaging children and teachers have claimed that children s attention spans are shorter than ever before because of addiction to screen based entertainment Jonathan Douglas the director of the National Literacy Trust insists that they are not advocating technology instead of books but wanted parents to use both and insists that When parents read to their children whatever the medium they increase their child s enjoyment of reading The Trust surveyed more than 1 000 parents with children aged three to five Almost all children had access to books in the home and just over 70 could use some sort of touch screen device Alarmingly some 2 4 of children failed to read at all and 13 3 looked at stories only once or twice a week Researchers found that young children who
