As the months get colder and the evenings get darker, encourage your kids to pick up a good book instead of reaching for the TV remote. Since October is National Book Month, this is a great time to focus on reading as a family. Check with your child’s school or your local library for any reading-related events and try out a few of our tips to get your kids excited about books.
- Pick up that book you’ve been meaning to read. Seeing you read will reinforce the idea that reading is valuable for your child.
- Asking your child about the book he or she is reading can be a great way to start up dinnertime conversation.
