Are you finding it hard to inspire your children to read?
I may just have the answer!
Try to read the same book together, and discuss the book while you walk somewhere.
Inspiring your child to read in a world of modern age technology can seem like an impossible task. For an adult, reading Roald Dahl books may seem boring, but it could be the only books your child is interested in reading. You can create a reading challenge together with your child by choosing and reading the same book. Then, set goals to read a chapter a week and make plans to meet each week to discuss the book together.
This type of reading challenge can have a serious impact on inspiring your child to be involved in reading, and may even make the experience more interesting for you. It will ultimately inspire your child to read independently at a later date.
This private book club between parents and child will soon turn into a love of reading and an increased level of literacy, and at the same time build the bond between you.
Reading is a skill that once taught can open up the world to your child. To see your child immersed in books, excited about a new book release and even under their duvet with a night light, reading can be so satisfying.
