WHY WE LOVE TO READ

 

 

 Dr Seuss Book Cover Printables

 

Here are some things we love to do: daydream, wander through a city or through a garden, visit a museum, take hot baths. But the thing we love to do most is read.

We love reading because every book we read expands our imagination.

We love reading because for as long as we are reading, the universe shrinks to the size of the book in our hands.

We love reading because it makes us think about all the people around the world who are reading the same book as us and how we are now connected to them.

We love reading because we can choose whether we want to read by ourselves or read with someone else.

We love reading because it makes us think about all of the other books we’ve read before and all of the books we want to read in the future.

We love reading because it’s exciting to imagine that the entire world is a library.

We love reading because while we are reading, no one is telling us what to think or what to do. We can be ourselves while discovering people who are different from us.

We love reading because we can travel all around the world without leaving our house. We can visit the past or the future and we can go underwater and fly to outer space.

We love reading because we like learning things.

We love reading because it is fun. Why do you love to read?

Helping Children Become Children Who Love to Read

 

   * If the adults in the home read, the children are more likely to read.

   * Children become better readers by reading.  

   * Children who read automatically increase their vocabulary.

 * Something magical happens when a child reads the right book at the right time.     If a child comes across a character that has the same feelings or fears, they feel less alone.

  Tips for Encouraging Kids to Read

 

1.  "Read me a story!"

Nearly every suggestion sent in by parent and teacher tip-sters had this message.   Reading together is a powerful tool in motivating your child to read, no matter how old they are.

 2.  Beyond Books

Tip-sters were quick to point out that reading material comes in many different shapes and sizes.  Magazines, board games, recipes, cereal boxes, signs, comic books, turning on the closed captioning on your television all provide opportunities for reading practice. 

3.  Keep it fun, for everyone 

 If kids are going to enjoy reading, the experience has to be enjoyable.  As you read with your children, keep them involved by asking questions about the story, and let them fill in the blanks. You or your children, can create activities related to the stories you're reading. In one household, reading Little House on the Prairie prompted lively games of "wagon-train" and discussions about life on the frontier. Another family likes to create mini-plays, acting out the stories they read. While her grandson "helps" in the garden, one grandmother spells words for him to write out using a muddy stick. Once the word is complete, the two of them sound it out together, wipe the word away, then move onto the next. This reading game keeps her grandson occupied for hours.
