Encouraging children to develop good reading habits


Setting up a reading tent or mini-library in child's bedroom may encourage them to read more.
Children of any age can appreciate works of fiction, and even if they aren't ready to recognize the
written word, they may still be able to improve their language skills as they listen to books that are
read by them. There are a number of ways that parents and teachers can help and foster children's
love of learning.

Make reading fun


Make reading enjoyable

There are a variety of books on the market that are tailored to different age ranges. Choose pop-up
books or other creatively published texts and if you are reading to your children you can vary your
tone of voice to maintain their interest. Setting up a reading tent or mini-library in child's bedroom
may also encourage them to read more frequently.

Use interactive books

Interactive books may have sound buttons and pull-out facts that will serve to bring stories to life.
Children can also hear a story being read out as they follow the words on the page.


Expose them to books from a variety of genres

Reading doesn't have to be limited to traditional stories. Children may also enjoy reading non-
fiction books, including encyclopedias, as well as newspapers targeted at children. Comic books
may also stimulate their interest in reading.

Read each night

Reading books together as part of a child's night-time routine will ensure that children associate
reading with relaxation. Children can also point out any words they are familiar with and read them
out.
For those children who have not yet begun reading, asking questions about the story such as 'What
do you think is going to happen next?will help them familiarise themselves with story structures.

Use drama

Children love nothing more than acting and trying out different roles. If your child is a reluctant
reader then encourage them to play a character from a fictional tale, complete with dialogue, may
help to motivate them to read a text.

Take them to the local library

Local libraries are a treasure trove for young children, and they regularly host story-tin sessions
and summer reading contests. Being surrounded by other children who love reading may be just
the thing to 'cement your child's enjoyment of reading.
