Encouraging kids to read in their off season (aka summer break) can be a chore. However, there are ways to make it fun. Even places in your community like your local library, which tries to make reading even more fun.
First of all, is finding books that your child is interested in. Younger kids this is usually easier because there is a wider selection. When they get older, their tastes may change but finding a series or type of book your child loves is key.
As a child (and even as an adult), I’m always reading a book. I know you probably wonder when I have time to read but I FIND time for it. Whether, it be a book on a my Kindle app that I’m reading as I’m drying my hair, sitting in line at the bank, or any free chance I get I have my nose in a book.
The VTech V.Reader has quickly become “the” toy in household. When I say it like that, I mean its “the” toy that all the younger kids are fighting over. However, they have learned they all sit and listen or read a story on the V.Reader. Not only it is fun and sleek like a Kindle, it is educational. (But let’s keep that our secret!)
