We all know that children want to play and have fun. If we want them to learn to read, we have to make books and reading playful and fun, too.
If your child enjoys books and is interested in them, they will want to learn to read. If they are happy when you read together, they will want to read. But if a child associates reading with negative feelings, they may not want to. It’s important to find a time when you and your child are in the right mood and can enjoy a book together.
It will help if you choose books that your child will enjoy. Your child will also get more enjoyment out of reading if you put on a bit of a show, making noises, attempting accents and different voices and being expressive. Your child will love it!
