With all the social media websites and electronic games, children have lost the desire to have quiet time and read a book. It is very important especially when they are still toddlers to instill a love of reading in your household. You have to allow your kids some freedom to do other things but always set a time for family reading time and never sacrifice that time. Be consistent; for instance pick a Friday night after dinner and always use that time for reading.
If you read to your child then make it fun and ask questions and make sounds for characters and/or animals in the story that way they can enjoy what you are reading to them. Hey, even make them laugh they will remember that and appreciate the story more. Make it enchanting and create a sense of excitement. Let them see how excited you are when you read a book or read to them.
If your child is a little older and can read to themselves then give them their time to do fun things but still set aside reading time and be firm with it. Personalized Children’s Books is a great way for them to read something different and “cool” because they are the stars of the story. Our stories are not boring and are packed with adventure. Our personalized children’s books are unique and they would want to share it with their friends.
Let them choose their own books and if they have a particular favorite character like Elmo of Sesame Street or even a superhero like Spiderman get them books relating to these characters. It’s even better if it PERSONALIZED!
