Growing up, do you remember a bookworm immersed in the world of wonderful stories, or do you struggle to cross the sea of words?
Developing a love for reading does not come naturally, and ideally it is a habit to be encouraged and formed from an early age. Part of it is a journey that begins with parents.
One of the ways to encourage your child to read is to let him choose a book he likes. But at the same time, help them choose a book that is neither too difficult nor too easy for them. Once you have identified the genre/type your child prefers, search for a series of books under that genre/type, which will make it easier for them to understand.
Most importantly, read with them and make it a fun experience. This not only serves as a time to bond with your child, but it also helps them enjoy reading. Happy memories will reinforce a love of reading because they associate books with pleasure rather than disdain.
