Ignite a can not put it down spark with our surefire picks and tips. Raise a kid who loves to read.

You have probably heard it before, but we will say it again: Reading makes kids smart. Engaging with kids books helps them excel in school. It will strengthen their vocabulary and spelling, as well as help them in math, science and reasoning skills. It gives them a sense of empathy, motivation and curiosity. I am sure you get the point. Reading is critical.

So now how do you get your kid hooked on reading books? Read to them, at least once a day. After that, the key is to be interactive. That means asking them a lot of questions, pointing out details for them in books and encouraging them to retell the story they read in their own words.

It is never too late to start. For little readers, make the experience tactile: Urge babies to touch and turn the pages. You can also mime actions, such as, eating and use toys for props.

As your child grows into the toddler years, identify colors and shapes on each page and then point them out in the world around you. Now is the time to start asking questions as well. (Where did the dog go? Why was Dad sad?) Help them relate to character’s emotions by asking them if they ever felt the same way.

Use your cutie’s love of imagination play to your advantage by visiting the library and making it a game at home. Stamp books and scan a pretend library card. Role playing can help set kids up for a positive lifetime habit.
