What Scholastic Says...

According to Scholastic these are the top ways to encourage your child to become a lifelong reader.

  3. Choose a book that is appropriate for their reading level.
  4. Pick one your childhood favorites to read.
  5. Encourage reading everyday.
  6. Have your child read a cookbook, find a recipe they would like to try, and then cook the recipe with them!
  7. Try out a summer reading program.
  8. Take an interest in what it is your child has chosen to read.
  9. Fill your home with books, magazines, and other reading materials.
  10. Read the book with your child, and then see the movie.
