[LISTEN] Creative parenting expert chats books, reading and kids

In the parenting feature, creative parenting expert Nikki Bush chats about developing the theatre of the mind using storytelling, reading and books.

Bush says that there’s a major growth in book fairs and adds that places like the children’s program at the Kingsmead Book Fair get completely oversubscribed.

Parents are waking up to the fact that literacy and love of books are an important part of their children’s lives.
