Reading with your child - everywhere, anytime and anything - is the best way to help them become a strong reader. Read books (of course), signs, labels and even cereal boxes!
Children who enjoy books will want to learn to read. Enjoying books together every day is the first step toward developing a love of reading. Sharing a book is an opportunity to bond with your child and to show them that reading is important. These positive, fun and playful experiences with books and stories foster a desire to read and encourage your child to keep trying to read.
Children will especially learn to love to read if they love what they’re reading. Follow your child’s developing interests and let your child choose their own books to read or ask your public librarian to help you find books on the subject your child is interested in.
