Developing a love for reading begins with you. Get started with these 6 Reading Tips from Sweetles® .
To start with….
- Get Comfortable
Pick a comfy spot to read in – one with plenty of light.
- Make A Routine
Whether it’s right before breakfast or right before bed, make a special time every day to read together.
- Encourage Your Children
Give lots of encouragement! Read the words aloud to your child.
- Show your love of Reading
Point to the pictures. Say the words together. Laugh with your child.
- Start Early!
It’s never too early. Reading can be a bonding activity for you and your new baby.
Introduce reading right away, keep books in the nursery and have your books out for baby and toddler to see!
- Have a Conversation
The fun continues after the last page! When you finish a story, ask your child about his/her favorite passages, characters, and illustrations. Get them thinking about the story and give them reasons to find it interesting and thought provoking. Make it fun!
