Reading Tips

Read every day with your child
Reading every day is the best way to ensure your child continues building literacy skills and is prepared for school. Be sure to devote time to reading each day.

Find the right level of books for your child at the library
Sound words out. Look at the part of the word they know. Back up and try again and use different words that make sense. If you don’t have a book with you, sing a song or tell a story. It’s never too early to start reading to your kids. Have fun reading and sharing stories with your family!

Read anywhere – in any language
If you don’t have a book with you, sing a song or tell a story. It’s never too early to start reading to your kids. Have fun reading and sharing stories with your family.

Talk about what you are reading
Ask questions about the story: What is happening? How will the story end? What is your favorite part of the story?

Make reading fun
It’s never too early to start reading to your kids. Have fun reading and sharing stories with your family!
