Kids’ Books

Holidays are a great time to get kids reading. 

1. Pack plenty of shiny new books and ask the kids to help choose them.

2. Look beyond the bookshelves; magazines and comics also develop reading skills and offer variety. Publications like National Geographic Kids are fun and educational.

3. Set an example! Schedule an hour's downtime in the afternoon for family reading. If you slip into a nap, don't snore. 

4. Read along with your kids. They love it. Keep them engaged by asking questions and talking about the story. "Why do you think they did that?" "Is the book better than the movie?" "Would you like to be a quidditch player?"

5. Discuss the book after they finish. "What score would you give the book out of 10 and why?" "Is it as good as Monkey Magic!?" Kids love to turn the tables and explain something they know well to their parents.

6. Set them a gettable target for books to read. If they reach the goal, it's ice cream time!
