A Few Tips for Reading With Kids at Any Age
Do you read daily with your little ones? We all know there are so many benefits to creating a reader (read more here). Some of our favorite darling moments in our own homes come from reading with our kids!
Here are a few simple things we’ve found helpful to keeping reading time fun interesting, and engaging.
📚 Let them choose the book so they'll be excited about it!
📙 Face books out on shelves if you can so the cover is visible, not just the spine of the book. Book ledges are perfect for this!
📘 Swap out the books on your book ledges, or those in closest reach for your kids. Use books you already have or borrow from the library.
📖 Choose a few books with flaps that are interactive. Your little one will love finding what is under those flaps!
📚 You do not have to finish every book. If your little one isn't enjoying it or if they're still an infant, it's completely ok to end the story early. It should be something enjoyable for everyone.
📖 Head to the library for new books or a story time. If you're little one is going through books quickly the library is a great way to explore some new books you haven't read. Story time is such a great way to break up your reading routine and bonus, it's free.
