Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here are a few things you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:
Set the example. Let children see you read.
Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills.
Encourage participation in the Read-a-thon!!
