Building Bridges: Forming Friendships

Dr Beth Cross (University's Institute of Youth and Community Research) led an evaluation project involving the study of 67 families who access Craigmillar library or nursery school provision in the Craigmillar area.

The report, Building Bridges Forming Friendships, was commissioned by Craigmillar Books for Babies and the project was carried out from June 2011 to May 2012.

Dr Beth Cross highlights that parents of children under the age of four are engaging in a broad range of learning opportunities across the day. Reading is often a family wide activity with older siblings, mums, dads and grandparents involved. Most parents surveyed for the report read to their children at least once a day and there is almost 100 percent uptake of Books for Babies resources.
