In today’s day and age with technology, televisions and computers, it is a rare sight to see a child of any age actually reading a book. So, what can a parent do to get their child to read? There are plenty of things that can be done.

First a parent can make sure that no matter what age their child is, that there are plenty of age-appropriate books and magazines to peak their interests laying around the house.

Parents also need to be good role models and read as often as they can. Set aside a “reading hour” or “reading half-hour” for the entire family to turn off the computers and television and pick up some reading material. Children who see their parents and siblings reading are more likely to want to read themselves.

Take trips to the library and visit the book mobile. Make a day of it and show them all of the resources that are out there for them in the world of reading.

Another good way to entice their reading interests is to read to them and let them read to you. It doesn’t have to be just at bed time either. Any time of the day is a good time for reading, whether it is out loud or to themselves.

Just by following these simple pieces of advice, in no time you will see your child’s interest in reading change for the better.

Happy reading!
