Make reading a priority for your family

It can be hard to fit “family reading time” into today’s hectic schedules. But the benefits for your child greatly outweigh the hassle. By making reading a family priority, you show your child that reading is very important—and also a fun activity.

To promote reading as a family:              

Set aside family reading time each day.   Even 15 minutes a day is a great start.
Pick a regular time for reading.   This will make
it easier to fit into your schedule. This
demon
strates that reading time is too important to miss.
Decide how to spend the reading time. You can
read a book aloud as a family, or everyone can read silently to themselves.
Keep it interesting. To prevent your reading routine from becoming stale, act out a play together. Or create a monthly reading challenge. Just keep reading!
Read books you like and enjoy. Enthusiasm is contagious!
