3 ways to build the love of reading in your child
Here are some quick tips on ways you can encourage your children to become self-motivated readers.
Sometimes, moms have to be creative to get their kids to enjoy reading, but its all good fun for everyone!
#1 Start early!
It’s NEVER too early and it’s amazing how quickly a child can pick up a book and become drawn to its colors,
pictures, and textures.
#2 Setup a daily routine
Make a daily habit of reading before bedtime or any set time that will work with your routine. Your child will get used to it and will remind you when you forget!
#3 Be animated!
I feel like I always receive extra smiles and giggles from my kids whenever I try to act out the characters or emphasize strong emotions.
Your child will just love the idea of you being silly and trying to be part of their favorite book ☺
