" Many New Year’s resolutions focus on developing healthy habits. Here’s one that is important to make and keep: provide a regular diet of books and reading for your preschooler. You feed and care for your child every day so that he will grow into a healthy, happy preschooler. Similarly, you also need to provide experiences that will enhance language development and stimulate learning skills, thereby doing your part to raise a reader. "
Read Every Day
Do Things Then Talk About It
It’s great to offer new experiences to your preschoolers, such as a visit to the zoo or museum, but a trip to the grocery store or the park can be just as educational. Talk about what you are seeing. Ask your preschooler what they think of it. When possible, use interesting words to describe what you are seeing.
Be a Reading Model
What better way to raise a reader then by reading yourself! Your child wants to imitate you and be like you. Have plenty of reading material for yourself as well as for your child. Tell your child how much you enjoy reading.
