10 Ways to Encourage Your Child to Read

1. Let your child see YOU reading!  Children imitate what they see, no one more than their parents and caregivers.

2. Help your child find things to read that suit their interests.  This might mean even wildlife or sports magazines.

3. Offer other special incentives to encourage your child's reading. Allow them to stay up an extra 15 minutes to finish a chapter; promise to take your child to see a movie after he or she has finished the book on which it was based.

4. Limit your children's TV viewing in an effort to make time for other activities, such as reading.  Never use TV as a reward for reading, or a punishment for not reading.

5. Have older siblings read to younger siblings.  Children often enjoy sharing their expertise to an admiring audience.

6. Schedule a family reading time, maybe 20 minutes before bed.

7. Play reading-related games.   Look through your closet for games that involve spelling or games that have cards that require reading directions, etc.

8. Take your children to the library regularly.

9. Read with a purpose.  Make your grocery list before shopping and have your child read it to you in the grocery store.

10. Read aloud to your child, especially a child who is discouraged by his or her own poor reading skills. The pleasure of listening to you read, rather than struggling alone, may restore your child's initial enthusiasm for books and reading.
