Looking for a way to help your little one become a bookworm? No problem! Here are some fun tips to get them excited about reading:

  • Make reading a daily routine. Snuggle up at bedtime and read to them throughout the day if you can. This will help them get used to sitting down and enjoying a book with you.
  • Choose books that are easy to follow, with lots of pictures and not too many words on each page. Funny stories and books with repetitive or rhyming text are great for keeping them engaged and helping them remember the story.
  • Let your toddler pick the books you read together by putting out a few options for them to choose from. Include books about their favorite topics, like animals or the alphabet, to make learning fun.
  • Be a reading role model. If your little one doesn't see you reading, make sure they do! Seeing you enjoying books will inspire them to pick up their own.
