Encouraging children to read can be challenging. Regardless, you should try to inspire your children to fall in love with the world of books. Here are some ideas to help with that.

Encouraging a Love of Books at Home

Reading is a skill that your children will use throughout their whole academic career. It shouldn't just be an obligation but rather an activity they enjoy and appreciate on their own time as well. If you need some ideas to encourage reading at home, try these out.
  • Don’t make it an obligation: Reading should be an enjoyable experience, not an extra school chore or punishment. Encourage your children to see the positive side of reading. For example, books can show us many different worlds and bring us the answers to many of our questions.
  • Make it personal: Children enjoy stories that they can relate to. If you want your youngsters to be interested in reading, get them books on subjects they like. If they’re big fans of soccer, look for Stars of  World Soccer by Illugi Jökulsson. Perhaps they’re scared about starting school. In this case, a book like First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg might be an excellent choice. Give them something they care about, and they will experience a new level of interest and investment.
  • Try an e-reader: Physical books are lovely and colorful, but sometimes they’re not easy to carry around. Here is where technology comes in. E-readers are a great option to get children to read. They can be adapted to every style. You can make the font larger, include fewer lines per page, you can basically tailor it to suit your reader’s needs. Best of all, you can share the e-reader and control what your children read.
