How to Get Your Child Interested in

Reading from a Young Age

How to Get Your Child Interested in Reading from a Young Age

Many parents are keen to see their little ones develop and grow a keen interest in learning, particularly when it comes to making sure they are prepared for when the time comes to start school.

One of the most important skills a child can learn is to read and be interested in books from an early age.

The good thing about developing an interest in reading is that it's not just all about books. You can help your little one develop their language ability through songs, rhymes, and games, learning activities don't have to be solely based on reading books alone!

So many great tips! Thank you! We have a 4 year old daughter so this subject is very close to my hart. So many of my friends complain that their (older) children don’t like to read books. I think it comes from the way we live today, social media, etc. On my blog, my content manager plug-in tells me: ” your sentence is too long! Your words are too complicated! Make shorter paragraphs”. So even we as adults, are getting used to “dumbed up” texts and so, are unable to “digest” complicated or long text anymore. 🙁

My mother and grandmother started reading to me the moment I was born and I grew to love books. I started reading on my own at the age of three and am an avid reader now. It’s definitely a good idea to read to young children!

Great tips for sure! We’ve been reading to our son since he was about three months old so he seems to like reading and loves picking out books!

This has always been something I’ve tried to prioritize with my girls. I am the world’s biggest reader though so I’m hoping to pass it on to my children. 🙂

My son had a really hard time with reading. We found that when he picked out his own books in the library, he was more interested in reading – as opposed to us saying “Here, read this”. This really opened up his interest.

Yes! My boys love books, and being read to. They are getting ready to go to kindergarten this Fall. They also love songs and games, so it’s great to read ideas about how to use those to develop language too.

I can really identify with this! My mom took us to the library at least once a week and was always singing to us!! 🙂

Neither of my kids were much into reading when they were little but turns out my youngest (now 8) has a love of non-fiction! You never know!

I remember frequent trips to the library during story time. I remember hearing audiobooks when I was younger and being so impressed that the man on the cassette player was able to read the book with me. I remember just being surrounded by books. I don’t think my parents did anything necessarily. They just exposed me to books. So many books. And when you’re young and curious, they just quickly capture your attention!

My parents didn’t read to me and to be honest I don’t even recall having a favorite book as a young child. I struggled with reading all through school and it wasn’t until I became a mom myself that I started really reading. Reading to them when they were little was my most favorite thing to do. And now both my boys are reading a grade or 2 ahead.

When Kids start reading young it can only help them in life, it is so great to get that head start and continuous practice through school
