7 Tips to Instill in Children a Love of Reading.

The love of books  is one of the best gifts parents can give their children. Reading helps in all areas of our lives. In addition, it makes our leisure time more enjoyable and fun.

How can parents instill in children a love of reading?

Regularly read to your child. Do this with expression and role-playing.
Read more for yourself. Show your child by example that reading – is an interesting and useful exercise.
Talk with your children about the books they read. Discuss interesting stories and share the thoughts.

Assign half an hour in your schedule for family reading.
Give your child books for the holidays. Children’s books are always very attentive gifts.
Make every second Sunday or Saturday of the month “a library day.”

Au Pairs can help. Many Au Pairs have passion for books and love reading. They enjoy reading with children, storytelling or having fun reading together. Reading with the child consistently every day will instill the reading habit.
