It’s imperative to encourage reading in your family.
Reading to your young child can boost vocabulary and reading skills before entering school. Cultivating a love of reading in your older children can open up a world of imagination and opportunity.
Time spent reading with your infant is actually conversation time. You can still read the words in the board book but interact with your child by talking about the pictures.
Make time to read as a family. Younger children will enjoy the tale. Look up information about topics with older children to learn more about the story.
Build excitement for reading by taking your child to get a library card. Encourage older children to belong to a book club. Share books that are meaningful to you so you can discuss them. Make reading important in your home.
