Sample text

So start the library visits now, when they’re little. With any luck they’ll develop a library habit that will last their whole life. It’s much harder to get older children to form the habit of going to the library. 12 Take your children to bookstores as often as you can, and allow them to buy favorite books. Little kids like to hear favorite books read to them over and over again. And when they start reading they like to read these books over and over again. Having these books permanently on their shelves (or floor) makes them easily available.

I’m starting to think that few avid readers pick up one book, read it through, put it down, and then pick up another, all the while sitting in some normal reading position. I find that avid readers often skip around in books, sometimes skipping endings altogether. Others have to eat or squirm around while they read. Kids bend book pages, hum and listen to a Walkman, or even watch television, while reading. Many jump from book to book, sometimes finishing earlier books, sometimes not. They’ll want to read nothing but a horror author for months, and then decide they’re never reading that author again.

That’s why you need to make sure reading is one of the things they love. 4 Don’t worry about making your children read only “good” books. It’s very easy for adults who are excellent readers to forget the delight they took in fairly junky reading as children. I remember the blissful ten-year-old happiness I felt upon discovering at my great-aunt’s library a cache of Nancy Drew books I hadn’t yet read. Goosebumps and Babysitters Club books are very far from any definition of good literature, and yet these are the books that bring children to a love of reading.
