Why read at home?

Why read at home?

Parents often wonder why their child does not want to read. Children want to do what their parents do. They look up to their parents to show them what is important. If a child's parents do not read at home, the child will not see it as something that is important. Here are some ways to show your child that reading is a part of everyday life:

  • Read the newspaper
  • Read your mail
  • Read the TV guide before choosing what to watch
  • Read a magazine
  • Read a book
  • Read a cookbook
  • Read a goodnight story to your child
