TIPS FOR RAISING BOOK LOVERS

Does your child like reading the same book over and over?


  • They understand it better each time, including the plot, vocabulary, and humor
  • They become more confident and enthusiastic about books and interested in the idea of reading
  • Let them fill in parts they know-- Make mistakes on purpose for them to catch or encourage them to say the lines they remember


What can you read besides books?


  • Street signs and street names while on the bus
  • Boxes or cans of food in the kitchen
  • Small signs in the grocery store, like for apples


Don't have a book with you?


  • Make up stories FOR your child -- You can change characters or use the same ones every time
  • Make up stories WITH your child -- Ask them what happens next or how a character should feel
  • Tell your child tales of your life -- "When I was your age..."
