Tips From Families
- Creating a bedtime ritual
We try to work on reading by creating a bedtime ritual of snack and reading before bed. Our son is now 4 and looks forward to reading at night as special family time.
One tip we have for keeping him interested and wanting to read more books is that we go to the library once a week and check out 7 books we've never read before. That way, at night, we are reading some of our books that are favorites, but we look forward to a "new" book that we all can read for the first time together. -LH
