Ways to Raise a Reader

  • Help children form a reading habit: read to your child every day.
  • Let children see you reading: newspapers, magazines, books, articles on the Internet.
  • It’s okay to focus on what’s happening in the pictures – if your child brings home long nonfiction books, try reading the captions.
  • Ask your child questions about the story – favorite parts, predictions, etc.
  • Watching a family movie? Use captions!
