There’s no app to replace your lap, read to your child

Louise Edensor

Middlesex University Dubai



This informative talk discusses the importance of reading with children. Neil Postman said, ‘Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see’. What kind of message do you want to send? This talk addresses some of the important reasons why children should put down their ipads and pick up a book. So step away from the marking, and come and be entertained for a little while. Come to this talk for the fun, the laughs and above all, the stories.


Louise Edensor is a lecturer in Children’s Literature, Media, and Foundation studies, and a doctoral candidate at the University of Northampton. She has taught English Literature to a wide range of students in the UK and mentors young writers in Dubai. She has spent the last 16 years reading to her children.
