There are quite a few ways to help your child get into summer reading and even reading in general. One of the best ways that you can do this is to come up with a creative approach to get your child to read. You can do this by looking at even magazines or graphic novels to make it more enjoyable for the child. Finally, you can read without a physical book. You can allow your child to get their reading done via audiobook.
- Providing a young reader with choice in their book select seems to be the chief step in encouraging summer reading.
- Reading does not have to be confined to physical chapter books, but can include a host of material as long as it is engaging.
- It is important that children also have the ability to seek out, discover, and obtain their desired reading material whether online or in the library.
“Summer reading began in the 1890s as a means to encourage children to use the library and build strong reading habits.”
