Spring for It

Sometimes change is welcome. As the weather gets nicer, consider moving your reading venue to the great outdoors. Set up a blanket under a tree or sit on a park bench. Maybe plan a little picnic. Pack a snack. Bring a short book or one of your child's favorites. You may find your preschooler is distracted and eager to move about. But for as long as you have his attention, enjoy the nice weather and some "reading together" time in the fresh air.

What I think . . .

There are all kinds of readers. Some—like my daughter and me—are never without a book to read for pleasure. Others—like my son—are careful, analytical, and curious readers who read primarily to seek information from the page.

No matter what kind of reader your child becomes, you can help him or her get started. After all, you are your child’s first teacher. And, best of all, you can have some fun in the process.

Please feel free to share your own ideas. Tell me about ways you've enjoyed reading with your child.
