READING TIPS:

  • A child is never too old to be read aloud to.
  • Encourage children to take turns reading aloud to you or to each other. Don't worry about correcting every mistake, just sit back and enjoy the story.
  • Add some fun to chore time! One person could read aloud, while the other does the dishes.
  • Create a special time and place in your home for reading aloud.
  • Talk about the books you read together. Ask your child how the book made them feel or what their favorite part was.
  • A librarian is always ready to recommend books! Never hesitate to ask for suggestions.
  • It's all right to read the same book over and over, children love to hear books repeated, and beginning readers can soon confidently "read" the book by themselves.
  • Read yourself. Whether it's a cookbook or the online news, you can show your child by example how important reading is!
  • If your child asks how the sun sets or gets a new pet, there's no better way to find the information than in a book!
  • Have fun! If your child gets restless it may be time to stop for the evening.
    Don't' hesitate to stop reading a book you and your child aren't enjoying. There are many books to choose from so why not put it down and find something you like better!
  • If your child wants to draw or do some other quiet activity while you read, let them. Children have different ways of listening.
