Make your child a 'Bookworm' - I completely do not agree but instead, Encourage Reading and get the child to form a daily routine for reading books. Begin Reading at the start and reading aloud is the easiest way to talk to your baby before they have any language of their own. It's never too late, Loud reading too does the tricks. Read, read and re-read. Familiarity is pleasure for the kid.

As parents or teachers, what we forget sometimes is missing out the fun while reading. Discovering books in a Library or at a store should be a routine. Encourage children by talking 'just books' with added Scrap book fun. Children love to draw and add color while they write a review or part of the story. Even games are fun while reading. Making spelling games, board games, cards and so on.

Reading should never be serious and this is no learning. We find children saying the story by-heart while participating in Story competition with no expressions. Let kids lighten up. Stories and comics are meant to be fun together. So, it's best using expressions and voice.

Well, here's an article on 'Encourage Reading' in Guardian of Angels and you can even find a part of it on the Kidsfreesouls.com Parenting page. Enjoy!
