Parents encouraged to read books with their children

If you have young children, do you read books together? A charity is warning that some parents don't feel confident enough. Book Trust is urging parents to read with their children as often as possible, and not to give up once they've started school.

The charity says it makes a huge difference to a child's development. This term, more than 100,000 children here in the South will be given a reading pack, to encourage more families to read together. Lauren Hall reports.
