    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!
