Nurturing a love of books in your child


One of the things I want to instill in my children is a love for books. This one thing alone will ensure they will have a good education. So, here's some things I've thought about on how to impart in them a love of books:

- Let them see me read a lot.
- Have books everywhere in the house.
- Always say "yes", when they ask if I can read a book to them.
- Visit book reading sessions.
- Visit the library weekly and let them check out some books.
- Visit bookstores and let them buy a book.
- When we have nothing to do, we go visit a bookstore.
- Read to them each day.
- Never make reading a chore, but a pleasure.
- Don't force them to read, but provide plenty of opportunities for them to read.
