Motivating Your Child to Read

Dad and Son Reading
One of the most important things you can do as a parent is to help your child enjoy reading. It is an investment of time and energy well worth the effort. While kids learn to read in school, they can often begin to associate reading with work and not pleasure. This can have a bad effect causing them to lose their desire to read.

One of the most effective ways to encourage your child to read is by reading aloud to them. You cannot start doing this too early in their lives. Even babies enjoy listening to your voice, looking at the pictures and helping to turn the pages.

Make Time for Reading

Set aside your reading time as a special time with your kids. Turn off the TV and other electronic devices and enjoy the simple pleasure of a good story. Even once your kids have learned to read for themselves, the shared enjoyment will continue to strengthen your child’s interest and appreciation for books.

Setup a mini library in your home so the kids always have easy access to books. Fill your library with enjoyable stories that will keep them engaged and interested. If the book you read seems dull to you, it will certainly be dull to your child as well. Choose books that are colorful, fun, and engaging.

Another great resource is your neighborhood library. Not only will they most likely have a section of children’s books, they often keep journals and reviews of children’s books. This is an easy way to keep your home library stocked full of great books.

Personalized Books

Finally, another great way to get your child interested in reading is with a personalized book. In these special books, your child becomes the star of the story. For more great resources on finding personalized books, check out these links:
