Tips to Get Your Child Reading This Summer

Some students love reading so much that it's hard to get them to put down their current book. Others, however, can't seem to get through a single page in one sitting. If your child just can't seem to enjoy reading, use these tips to help them find pleasure in this important activity.

Figure out Their Likes

If your child puts up a resistance to reading, all is not lost. Some students don't enjoy reading simply because they've never read something that interested them. To help your child find their interests, take them on a trip to the local library. Let them browse the shelves of books, magazines, graphic novels, and everything else as they please. Encourage them to pick up items that interest them. They can then take these home and see how things go. Once your child finds a genre they love, getting them to read will be much easier.

Start a Book Club

Reading tends to be a solitary activity, but it can be turned into something more social. Invite the children in the neighborhood to start a book club with your child. They can choose what books they want to read this summer so that it's more fun for them. Choose a new book each week and then hold a book club meeting once everyone has finished the book. At their meeting, they can discuss the book, what they liked, what they didn't like, and anything else they want to share. This is a great way to keep students motivated to continue reading over the summer.

Take a Day Trip

To keep your child interested in a book they're reading, plan a day trip that is relevant to the story. For example, if the book takes place in a beach town, take your child to the beach for a day of fun and reading. Other places you can visit include museums, parks, and historical towns that are relevant to the plot of the book.
