Five Tips to Help Your Child Become a Great Reader
Get involved. Reading aloud to and with your child is just as important as encouraging your child to read independently.
Be curious. Ask questions about what your child is reading.
Make reading fun. Allow your child to pick books on subjects that interest her or him.
Words are everywhere—not just in books. Practice reading signs, packages, and cereal boxes with your child.
Set a good example. Make sure your child sees YOU reading.
