All three of our kids love to read, and I think that it is because they see us reading. We don't have cable TV, so we read in the evening instead, and we make trips to the library every other week. They just think that reading is something that everyone does.

barbara said...

I set a good example - I read before bed every night, and I always tell them they're welcome to read with me. When they were younger and had set bedtimes, I told them that they could stay up longer if they were going to read in bed. Stay up later? Of course they jumped a the chance! And of course, reading right before bed is relaxing, so they fell asleep quickly when they were done reading.

Eve @ Confessions of a Housewife said...

my daughter is only 11 months old, but I already try to encourage reading by reading to her every night and usually several time through the day as well.

We also go to programs at the library.

Amy said...

My children are on their own now, but when they were younger we always read aloud as a family. I think I enjoyed it more than they did! We always signed up for the summer reading programs at our local library, where they won prizes for reaching their reading goals. They all loved reading, and still do.

Amy said...

Right now our favorite healthy snacks include fresh fruit from the farmers market, and veggies from our garden. We make a quick "pizza" by using a wheat tortilla, lighly brushed with olive oil, topped with sliced tomatoes, torn basil, and provolone cheese. I bake this in the toaster oven at 375 for a few minutes, until the cheese is melted.

Girly Remix said...

Gotta love the magnet letters on the fridge! :)
We also have books in every room.

Simply by having them abundantly available. Magazine subscriptions to age appropriate publications is one good way. Try to find magazines that also include fiction and news stories for that particular age group.

We encourage reading in several ways. With the baby we use funny voices and choose books with large bright pictures. With our older daughter we will sit down and read with her and discuss the book. She also takes comprehension tests at school on the books she reads at home. If she does well she gets rewarded.

One of my favorite memories is of my mom and I reading together. I've tried to instill a love of books in my children but the pace of life is so much faster I'm not sure I've succeeded.

Erin said...

My husband and I are both English teachers, so we definitely push reading. Our two year old has more books than toys, and when I'm nursing his baby brother, I ask him to cuddle on the couch with me and I read to him. This way, both boys benefit from spoken words.

js22 said...

We make frequent trips to the library to get books. We also look at upcoming books and get put on the waitlist for those books that sound good.
