Your child’s reading habits begin with you

What does this mean? Children thrive off of consistent daily reading practice. They need guidance to ignite that beginning reading passion which will dissipate without nurturing.

What should I do? Set the tone early on that reading is important. Model the importance of reading through visits to the library, openly reading for pleasure in your home, and daily reading with your child.

Is there anything else? Change up your reading routine when you see your child needs it. Your child will find many interests, authors, and reading activities they enjoy, grow tired of, and outgrow.  Knowing when new exposures are necessary is the key to maintaining a healthy interest in reading.
