Having good knowledge and understanding of our world around us also helps us to talk about books. If we’ve experienced things ourselves, then we can talk about what characters are doing in books and how they’re feeling with ease. 

Each weekend pick a place from the list below and visit it with your family. They’re all free to visit, will help you with your learning and most importantly… they’re fun!
