-Reading aloud to your child is the most effective way to encourage your children to love books and reading. Older children will love it if you pick a chapter book to read aloud to them. Do a chapter every night and before you know it they’ll be begging you to do a few more pages.
-Have plenty of reading material around your home and help children view them as part of daily life.
-Set up a home library for your children. Or, check books out of the public library or our school library and keep them in a special “borrowed” library spot
-Be sure your children see you reading for pleasure.
