Since reading is such a solitary activity, one way to make it feel more social, and thus more enjoyable, is by scheduling a regular time for your child and one or two of their closest friends — or siblings — to shoot the breeze over an age-appropriate book. Younger kids will need parents to oversee the meetings and ask questions to keep them on track.
No time to meet face-to-face? Make it an email meeting.
