A BIG thank you to Kid Curated Books for sponsoring today’s post.
Are you wondering how to help your kids develop a love of reading this Christmas? The key to helping kids love reading is to keep it fun and find ways to incorporate books into your daily life. With a soft cozy blanket and the smell of pine needles in the living room, this Christmas season is the perfect time for your little ones to discover a new favorite book! Inspiring your kids with the love of reading is truly one of the best gifts you can give!
Here are my top tips for how to inspire your kids to develop a lasting love of reading…
How to Help Your Kids Develop a Love for Reading This Christmas
1: Read Bedtime Stories With Your Kids
Reading bedtime stories every night creates a fun routine that your child will look forward to. Plus, by creating this routine where you read every night, it will help your child develop an interest in books! Encouraging your child to read before bed will also create a habit of reading that they’ll follow on their own as they grow older.
2: Give them Board Books when They’re Babies
Consider specially made, extra durable board books for infants. Sure they might nibble on them a bit, but always having books around will help them develop strong attachments to books from an early age!
3: Stash Books in the Back Seat
Instead of turning on the DVD player or handing over the iPad, keep a stash of books for your kids in the back seat. Then keep it fun and exciting by rotating your car’s book collection with different books once a month. When you’re driving around town or on your next road trip, you’ll be surprised how often your kids will start grabbing for those books!
4: Keep Books Around Your Home
Simply having books, magazines, and newspapers around your home will help children to view them as part of daily life. Your example of reading frequently and enjoying it will reinforce that view. In addition to digital books, I love having physical books at home as well. There’s just something special about turning those pages to see what happens next!
5: Subscribe to Kid Curated Books
Keeping kids reading is key to their successful future, and that’s where a monthly book box subscription from Kid Curated Books comes in!
