It is never too early to encourage kids to read. Even a toddler can have the ability to decode words. This means we want to get them started with reading at a very young age before they are actively learning to read. This only will help their reading skills come in quicker when they are truly ready.
There are 3 easy ways to help kids developing their love for books:
- Stock Up On Plenty Of Children's Books And Read To The Kids- You will want to stock up on children's reading books from the time they are babies until they are ready to start reading on their own. The earlier you have plenty of these books on hand and are reading to your kids, the more familiar they will be with being read to. And, as a result, they will have the desire to want to learn to read themselves if they are constantly read to.
- Read To The Child Several Times A Day - Don't just only read to child at bedtime. In fact, read to kids several other times in a day. The kids could associate reading with going to bed. Reading to kids several times a day will avoid that association. Besides, the more they are read to, the more they will be encouraged to learn how to read on their own.
- Allow The Kids To Choose The Books They Want - Ask your kids which books they want you to read to them so they can become enthusiastic about reading and story time. After all, you want your kids to develop a positive attitude about reading! And allowing them to choose the books will help.
These 3 suggested tips help to encourage kids to read, then they will develop a love for reading sooner rather than later. If you want your kids to be excited and enthusiastic about reading, these tips will help make that happen.
