HOW TO RAISE A BOOKWORM!
YOU are just as vital as your child's Teacher or Librarian in helping your child learn to read and enjoy books!
Let your child read a book for the sheer ENJOYMENT of reading!!!!
"Keep reading out loud to your child even after he can read. It teaches the flow of the text and the sound of different words, and it helps foster a lifelong love of reading." Rives
"Don't be afraid to let your child read the same book more than once. It builds confidence and helps her understand the story better. She will notice things she didn't the first time: details of the story or an unfamiliar word or how the book relates to her own life." First-grade teacher in North Carolina
"If you can't always read aloud, there are some great websites and apps out there that will do it for you. Some great ones are SAG-AFTRA Foundation's StorylineOnline.net, where celebrities read classic books and Mrs. P's Magic Library. Many public libraries have books on tape or audiobook subscription services." Jones
