If you are a parent, or have advise for parents… What do you do (or think would work) to foster the love of reading to your kids?
As a mom I try to find about things my kids are already interested in. This is always easy with Nonfiction books with my little ones. For instance my three girls are obsessed with all things bugs, and/or animals so these are what I get for them:
Fiction books are a bit harder with my kids for some reason. I try to keep them interested by doing different voices for each character, eating snacks that the characters eat in the book, and also if there is a movie version we always celebrate finishing a book with movie night.
This summer we read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Yes, this book is exciting, but when you are dealing with a 5, 7, and 9 year old I have to bring out a few surprises to keep everyone paying attention. So when Harry and Ron got chocolate frogs with a wizard card my kids got the same.
I’m excited to see what others do to encourage reading!
