Become a Fan

If your child loves a particular book, do some research. Find out if the author has written other books that your child might enjoy. Then skip on over to your library to find those books. 

You can do some internet research to find biographical information and maybe even photographs of the author. This kind of background helps your child understand the idea of authorship–that real people write books. It might even be an inspiration for your child to write his or her own book!

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.
