Once your child hits preschool, make reading a full multimedia experience. Teach your child that stories transcend the written word by acting out favorite tales together, listening to audio books and employing a few apps.

You are probably pointing out letters to your enthusiastic young pre-reader, but do not forget to highlight numbers while reading also. Ask math questions like: How many sandwiches did the bear eat? Help your child count on their fingers. You can also build comprehension skills by challenging kids to guess what will happen next in the story.

As they move into kindergarten and elementary school, children develop their own strong preferences. Pay close attention to what books your child responds to and what topics they are curious about. Use this as a launching point to connect them with new genres and explore even more. If your kids likes a particular drawing from a certain book, then introduce them to more drawings and books by that same author. Your child will realize that reading empowers them to make new discoveries.
