Top Ways to Get Your Kids to Read
Here's how you can make reading a part of your
kids' everyday lives.
1. Show your kids that reading will introduce them
to new people, take them to faraway places, and
let them travel through time. Start a family or
neigborhood book group.
2. Sign up your kids (and yourself) for a book club.
3. Print out these bookmarks and your kids will
never lose their place again!
4. Make the connection between fact and fiction
for your kids. If they loved Stellaluna, point them
toward this quiz on bats.
5. Have your kids recommend their favorite books
to friends and get their friends' recommendations.

6. Turn your kids into supersleuths. After they read a
book, they can create an unbreakable, crazy code.
7. Be sneaky! Take our kids on a "book nick." It's kind

8. Remember that practice makes perfect. Help your
kids practice rhyming words, drawing lines and
shapes, and moving their eyes and hands from left to
9. E-books are a great new tool. If you own one be
sure to get some children’s books and read with your
10. Make reading relaxing and low-key for a short
part of the day.
11 Read aloud some funny or interesting parts of
your favorite book.
12.Draw your child in with a riddle book for kids, a
passage from Sports Illustrated, or a newspaper
