One of the most important goals of our school library is to help students develop a love of reading, so that it becomes a lifelong habit. I try to properly match each individual student with their reading interests and goals so they will enjoy reading and improve their reading skills. The only way most children can get to be good readers is to read regularly. Below are ways that you can encourage your child to read.

Ways to Help Your Child Love Reading
Ask your school librarian for help. The school librarian can connect your child with books either in the school library or at the local public library.

One of the greatest pleasures of a good book is the opportunity to discuss it with fellow readers. try reading a book with your child. Get two copies and read a few chapters at a time. Schedule a "meeting" to talk about the book. Even once a week. It will be a nice opportunity for you to share time with your child while also helping them to see that reading can be fun.
