Motivating our children to read.

Here some fun ways to motivate your school aged child to read:
  1. Read in different places like outside on a picnic blanket, under the dining table, in a makeshift fort built out of pillows and blankets, by the pool, in a treehouse....
  2. Have them read out loud to the family pet, to an elderly relative or neighbor or to a younger sibling
  3. Do a book swap with friends to find new books to read.
  4. Give them challenges to read so many books and then get a reward when they reach the goal.
  5. And of course, visit your local library to find new books!
