20 Tips to Encourage Kids’ Reading

In honor of National Children’s Book Week, the literacy group Reading Is Fundamental sent these 20 ways to encourage reading:

1.  Scout for things your children might like to read.  Use their interests and hobbies as starting points.

2.  Leave all sorts of reading materials including books, magazines, and colorful catalogs in conspicuous places around your home.

3.  Notice what attracts your children’s attention, even if they only look at the pictures.  Then build on that interest; read a short selection aloud, or simply bring home more information on the same subject.
