Reading Tips

Make a special reading spot.
Designating a special reading spot for children to read with their parents guardians is not only fun, but is also a great way to create a distraction-free zone where children can concentrate. The reading spot should be rid of any extraneous noise, toys, etc. Putting some pillows or a comfy chair in the corner of a living room and surrounding the area with books is a great way to go.


Be a great reading partner!
It’s no fun to read when you’re forced to or feel embarrassed and ashamed to read. Building trust and supporting a child reader is crucial as a reading partner.

Author’s Corner

Know Your Author

Help your child learn more about the authors of her favorite books. Did you know, for example, that Roald Dahl, author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, was a British air force pilot during World War II? Or that Beverly Cleary, who created the Ramona series, was a struggling reader during her first years of school? Check out author biographies from the library or help your child do research online. Pose questions for your child based on what you learn, for example, do you think the author’s books are based on her own experiences? Did the author live a long time ago, or is he still alive? Let the exploration of the author’s story lead you to other topics. For instance, learning about Laura Ingalls Wilder’s life could spark her curiosity about how Native American families lived at that time.
