The Paint Wanneroo REaD, Reading Corner is a community space where families, carers and the wider community are invited to pick up a book and read to a child.
As a community initiative all children's books within the Reading Corner are donated. To help us keep the Reading Corner alive, if you have children's books you no longer need, donate these next time you're at the centre at the Information Desk and give them a second lease of life.
PAINT THE TOWN READ | OUR STORY
WHO WE ARE
We’re an early literacy movement. Encouraging people to read with children from birth, so they start school ready to learn.
WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
Our brains do most of their critical development in the first three years of life. A baby’s brain doubles in weight in the first year, tripling by age three.
Every time we read, talk, sing and rhyme with children brain connections grow, and build the foundations for learning.
Children with good foundational early literacy skills arrive at school:
- able to communicate their needs
- understanding conversations
- able to take direction, and
- ready to learn to read and write, with a healthy brain.
