5 Tips for Instilling the Love of Reading in Children

[Sponsored Review]

Reading has many benefits for children. For example, improving their focus and concentration, stimulating their imagination,  developing language skills, and so on. However, how can we instill the love of reading in children? 

Tips #1. Model reading
Put down your IT gadgets for a moment, read a book or newspaper or magazine. When the children see us reading a book, they would learn from us.

Tips #2. Read with your children
Reading with your children can be reading aloud with your children, or, you and your children read your own books and then talk about your read after that.

Tips #3. Making the home environment conducive for reading
Place the books on the bookshelf, make them easily accessible for your children.

Tips #4. Making reading a routine
Schedule 20 to 30 minutes everyday for reading. 

Tips #5. Let children choose what they want to read
While sometimes you choose the appropriate books for your children, do allow them to choose books that they are interested in.
