  • Visit your local library – it’s free to join! As well as taking out books, use visits to the library as a time to find books and films about your child’s hobbies and interests.
  • Make time to read. Set aside a time for reading – after school or before bedtime. Encourage independent reading but don’t be afraid to still read with your child when you can. Your child should be reading for at least 20 minutes every day.
  • Don’t just read books. Encourage your child to read newspapers, TV guides, comics and magazines. Ask your child to find out information from the Internet, cookery books, etc.
  • Be positive! Praise your child for trying hard at their reading. Let them know it’s all right to make mistakes
  • Read yourself! Show a good example by talking about the reading you do at work and at home. Let your child know that reading is an important part of your life.
  • Let your child read with younger children. Encourage them to read to other members of the family and younger siblings.
  • Let them read their favourites. Don’t worry if they only read one kind of book.
  • Make the story come to life. Encourage your child to read with expression. This will help them read more fluently.
  • Keep books safe. Make your child their own special place to keep their books in their bedroom.
