What Are A Few Tips ForĀ Getting Kids Excited About Reading?

I think the very first step is to get the kids some age appropriate books. Colourful and with lots of images – this itself draws kids to the books at that age and makes them curious about learning about about the images & words in the book. That’s what it was like for me and most people I know.

Tell stories to your kids from the time that they are really young and make it a point to read from a book. Watch their big eyes go wide as you talk about kings and queens, swords and bows & arrows, big romance and big wars and happily ever after. Make the voices and make humour a big part of the story telling. These all, time honoured traditions are awesome ways to get their imagination going and tell them about stories you want them to know and love and share what you had read to you when you were a kid.

Once you have done that, you create a habit in the kids to want to know the stories, either to be read to them or read it themselves. That curiosity and thirst for knowing will be instilled and they will soon start to read and ask for more books. Provide it for them and every time there is a birthday or Christmas or any kind of gift giving opportunity, get them some books and ask relatives who want to gift your children something to also get them some books. You have now sown the seeds of reading.
