Provide a Suitable Place & Time
Provide a quiet and peaceful place to read. Choose a time when your child is not hungry or tired. Let your child know that reading is important to you. Get comfortable, cuddle on the sofa or on the floor with a pillow.
Provide Suitable Material
Teach your child to select high-interest material. The reading material should not be too difficult. ENJOY IT!
