Just found out that BIL and SIL are having a christening for our 2.5 year old niece. Don't get me started on the late notice etc. no idea what gift to get. Can't be toys or clothes and I don't want a religious gift. Any ideas? Looking to spend $300.
Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances.
