I was provided with these books.
The twins have taken on an early love for books. They are constantly pulling their favorite books off the bookshelf and recently, they’ve been claiming a corner and jabbering away as they read alone. It’s so stinkin’ cute and I can’t help but stand aside and absorb the moment. If you have little ones flipping pages in your home, here are some Tips to Help Kids Read This Summer.
- Taking turns to read aloud with your child.
- Offer incentives such as staying up past bedtime when they spend time reading over the Summer.
- Play word games in the car
- Offer new books and other fun ways to read like comic books, magazines, and eBooks. Interactive eBooks and apps offer a fun way of storytelling . Bright colors, fun animation, and great audio make a them a reading adventure your kids will love.
Set Up a Reading Area
Whether it’s a basket or a shelf, keep your child’s book in one easily accessible place so they can get their books out when they want to read.
Provide colorful board books for those exploring hands
After four kids, I’ve learned to keep the books with paper pages put away until they are over the age of 5. Board books are what we go for. The twins can easily look through the book, get excited and jab their fingers at pictures, and even carry their books around by their teeth as their attention span takes them on another journey.
