  • When my son was little I always read to him. Then has he got into school, I had him read to me. Now, with him grown, I read to my great-nephew that I babysit. I think the key to getting a child to develop a love of reading is finding out what captures their imagination. My son hated the reading assigned in school, I figured out that it was because he could read above that level and it bored him. The teacher was great and worked with us so that he could do the assigned work but still read harder stories. Read to children when they’re young and develop a lifetime of love for books!

  • Today, parents are so busy with life that conversations around the dinner table just don’t happen. Making time to read with, and to, children gives a new opportunity to make real world connections, share memories, and just cuddle. As the first teachers, parents who share a love of reading with their children are helping to build lifelong readers.
