"Orla did it!" says Orla. She’s really come on leaps and bounds since we first met her. Hayley talks about how important spending time together is – "you’re getting that emotional bond and if you manage to establish that, when they go into nursery, when they get friends, they’ll bond with others."

Amy, Hayley’s best friend, explains that "everything that Hayley does for Orla has made an impact on her life." Whether it’s building a princess castle or reading a story together, Hayley and Orla always seem to find plenty to do. And PlayTalkRead has definitely helped –

"I’ve learned a lot of new activities to do with her and a lot of things on the website are free which is a great benefit."

You’ll notice Orla’s personality is really starting to come alive – she’s starting to speak in sentences and sing songs. Hayley says that Orla’s getting more confident – "as long as you keep reading to them, playing with them, anything you can… it doesn’t have to be something that’s costly". At the end of the day, busy little hands make for clever, happy kids.
