Reading is a beautiful activity that can help you learn, grow, and amuse you while you get lost in the pages. However, a lot of children rather spend their time watching TV than reading a book! If your child is one of them, but you’d like them to read once in a while, this post will help you encourage them to do so.

How to Encourage Your Child to Read

Choose Well

A big tip for getting your child interested in books is to pick one that they're intrigued by or curious about. Just make sure that the material is appropriate for their age and reading abilities.

Set the Right Conditions

Reading while the music is playing may work for some, but it isn’t effective if your child has trouble focusing on a book. Set the right conditions to guarantee your child will focus on their material. They should be comfortable, have good lighting and enough time to enjoy the book.

Actively Engage with the Book

There are certain practices your child can do to engage more with their books and improve their reading comprehension skills at the same time. For example:
  • Keeping a dictionary close and looking for unknown words to understand the book better.
  • Highlighting important information in the book.
  • Taking notes about the new words learned, significant plot points, questions or like/dislikes about the story.

Share It

Experiences can be a lot richer and better enjoyed if they’re shared with others! You can join in with your child, read the book, and then discuss what you thought and felt while reading it.
