I have cracked the code when it comes to kids and reading. Here are my 5 simple steps to help your child learn to love reading. Get a pen…
1. Read to your kid.
Your kid wants attention…from YOU. Reading to your child will give them the attention they crave.
2. Read to your kid.
Your kid wants to snuggle…with YOU. There are lots of snuggles when reading to your child.
3. Read to your kid.
Your child has an incredible imagination. Reading to your child expands that gift.
4. Read to your kid.
Kids learn by example. When you read to them you are showing them that reading is important and that you love books too.
5. Read to your kid.
It will lesson your mom guilt a few degrees for letting him watch TV all morning and play Minecraft all afternoon.
This isn’t rocket science, people. You could kill yourself with keeping track of reading charts and sticker graphs and free pizza for ever 10th book read and metal ceremonies at the library. That’s all well and good but when it comes down to it; keep it simple. Read to your kid…a lot.
