How Can You Motivate Your Child to Read?


  • Your example is important.  Let your child see you reading newspapers, magazines, and books.
  • When you read, share your thoughts and reactions to the story or article.  Encourage your child to do the same for his/her reading.
  • Set aside a special time for reading to/with your child every day.  This will teach your child that reading is important and enjoyable.
  • Encourage and praise your child’s efforts to read.
  • Visit the school or public library often.
  • Turn off the TV and talk with your child.
  • Make sure books are available and conveniently located.
