Getting kids to read can be a challenge and there are all kinds of strategies to foster an interest in books. Here are three tips to get your child running to the bookshelf.

Start Early

For a child, reading is a more imagination than words on a page. Reading to your child before they are able to read will help jumpstart their imagination and will also help them associate their imaginings with books.

Set a Schedule

Story time has been a well used tool for generations because it works so well. Set a time, I would suggest right before bed, to read. Set a length of time, this can be in minutes, pages or chapters. Setting a time limit will help to keep your childís interest and will teach them about restrictions and patience.

Have Your Child Read to You

Once your child is old enough to read, have them read to you or take turns reading. This is a great bonding activity, and best of all, it is effective. I recommend that parents start off by reading most of a page, then have your child read the last few sentences.

Getting your child addicted to reading is great investment in their future. Reading is also a wonderful way to spend time with your children, as parents you will get as much out of the activity as your children do.
