As a child, I loved reading just as much as I did playing outside or in the company of friends. All I needed was a good book and a quiet room and I was suddenly transported into an entirely different world.
Along with the likes of Madeleine L’Engle, C.S. Lewis, and Beverly Cleary, I give credit to my parents. They did a great job of nurturing my love of reading, and that’s why I want to do the same for my kids.
We know from research that reading truly makes an impact on kids’ lives, not only now but in the future as well. According to Scholastic.com, children who grow up in homes with many books go further in school, and that increased family engagement with academics is related to better reading outcomes and other successes in kids.
Here are four ways you can support your child’s love for reading, a love that will serve them well throughout their lives.
