Which parent wouldn't be happy to get their kids to love reading as much as they do? If you are unsure where to start, here are Fairy Tales Retold's three tips to get them going:
1. Make reading a part of their routine
From infancy to adolescence, make sure books are a part of their life. Bedtime stories are a perfect example as well as setting a designated reading time. However, visits to libraries and bookshops can be included here as well, as you help them to find new books. Read to them or read together!
2. Lead by example
When children see their parents enjoying a book, it sends them a positive and motivating message. Tell them about your reading and share your enthusiasm. Make sure books are easily accessible too, especially to little ones.
3. Try an audiobook!
Daily life can get hectic, and sometimes we might miss the scheduled reading time. The perfect solution? Audiobooks! Not only are they a great introduction to the physical books, but they can also offer more versatility: play them during bath time, for example, or on the way to school.
