Raising Readers

  • If you want your children to experience the lifelong benefits of being readers, READ...read in front of them, read to them, read with them...just READ! Many parents acknowledge the importance of practicing when it comes to sports; reading needs to be practiced, too! It's a great idea to set aside time just for reading. Add a book light by your child's bed so that he/she can get in the habit of reading before falling asleep. The more a child reads, the better he will get at it, and the more enjoyable it will become. Reading to your child is great practice as well. Children love to be read to even after they can read by themselves.
