Light a love of literature
One of the great pleasures of parenthood is seeing your child’s nose buried in a book. Written stories let kids stretch their imagination in ways that movies and television never could.
But for some kids, the joy of reading doesn’t come easily — and may never come at all without a gentle nudge. Maybe they have a reading disability, find reading too labor-intensive (books are hard; TV is easy!), or just haven't found a book that clicks for them.
If your child is a reluctant reader, don’t give up! There are ways to light a fire under even the most unenthusiastic reader. It could be just a matter of finding the right book or series to ignite that love of reading.
