Children at Ranui Kindergarten, in Invercargill, were yesterday given illustrated story books as part of Fairfax’s First Book scheme.

Head teacher Jenny Tattersfield said the books encouraged a valuable connection between kindergarten and home learning.

"We read part of the story here and encourage parents to read the rest at home," Ms Tattersfield said.

Harriet Flick, 4, said she loved the books because "they have lava and volcanoes"’.
