Does your child enjoy reading? How you can help your child.

It is important that your child enjoys reading.  Why?

Children that enjoy reading will read more because they are getting pleasure out of reading.  Children that read for pleasure not only have better reading skills, but they also have better writing skills and a more established vocabulary.

It’s simple, if your child enjoys reading, they will read more.

How can you help your child enjoy reading?

Set an example by reading yourself.  If your child sees you reading, they will be more inclined to want to read along.

Encourage your child to read with you.  If you are cooking, have them read parts of the recipe to you.  If you are reading the newspaper, have them read the weather forecast.  If you are reading a magazine, have them read the captions to pictures.  If you are in the car, read street signs.  I could go on and on, but you don’t need endless examples.  It can be anything. read more
