Reading is a very good habit as it gives you knowledge. Books are the real companions which never leave you alone. Wherever you go, if you have a book to read, you are never alone and you never get bored. However, not everybody enjoys this reading habit. Many people don’t like reading long stories as they don’t have that patience. They don’t find literature that much interesting. But, they don’t know what fun they are missing in their life. In fact the reading habit should be developed from the very childhood. So make sure to develop this habit in your child from an early age.
Gift Him Books: Whenever there is any occasion like his birthday or something like that, give him books as gifts. Make him understand the value of reading books. Let your kid know that the best gift one can receive is a book. However, you must know the categories of books that should be given to your child. If you child loves reading fairy tales or comics, give him that. Never pressurize him to read some particular type of books. Leave it up to him.
Ask Him to Tell Stories: While spending time with your kid, ask him to tell you stories from the books. Thus he will be very much encouraged to read on the books. Ask him to read out the stories and enjoy together. Encouragement is the most important thing while teaching something to your kid.
Develop a Curiosity: Try this out! Start telling an interesting story to your child and stop in the middle. Don’t finish telling the story. And then give him the book and ask to know the rest of the story by reading it from the book. This trick works wonders and develops a curiosity in your child.
Let him Know the Value of Books: Discuss with your child about the great values of books. Tell him how he can learn a lot from different types of books. Let him know how he can develop his vocabulary and style of writing through reading books. Thus your child will develop an interest in reading books.
