How Can You Encourage Your Preschool-Aged Child to Read?

Reading is an integral part of learning and growing at every stage of life. Helping your child foster a love for reading will help them develop critical thinking skills, creativity, problem solving, and communication skills.

In today’s society, kids have a lot of options when it comes to entertainment. As a preschool in Albuquerque, we are often asked how parents can encourage their child to choose a book over electronic devices. Make reading fun and interactive with these three steps!

Make Reading Part of Your Child’s Regular Routine

Young children thrive on routine. Incorporating reading into their daily schedules will help your child know what to expect and turn reading into something that naturally fits into their day. Spending an hour each night reading with your child at bedtime can bring you and your child closer together while instilling a love of storytelling.

Encourage Your Child to Explore Their Interests

There are books for children of all ages on virtually every imaginable topic! If your child has a special interest or hobby, take them to the library and encourage them to choose a book about something they are interested in. A child who learns that reading isn’t just associated with schoolwork is more likely to develop a love for reading for pleasure.

Make Reading a Special Event

Turn reading into a special treat! Many recreation centers and public libraries have literary events for young children that can turn reading into a fun, social experience. By making reading a rewarding experience for your child, he or he is more likely to associate books with fun and begin choosing to read for fun!
