Encouraging children to read is a good habit that helps develop their intelligence and creative thinking. However, not every child has the motivation and patience to read. So, how can we effectively promote reading habits in children? Let’s explore these 7 ways.

Step 1: Create a Reading-Friendly Environment

You can create a conducive reading environment by setting up a creative reading corner. Providing a dedicated space at home where children can comfortably read and explore the world of books is essential for any parent. Parents can also offer age-appropriate books and diversify the topics so that children have various options when choosing books. Establish a daily reading habit by setting a goal for children to read for at least 15 minutes each day and create a daily reading schedule.

Step 2: Show Your Own Love for Books

First and foremost, develop a habit of reading books in front of your children. Children are more likely to be interested when they see adults around them reading books and sharing their love for books. They will automatically imitate and start reading on their own.

Telling stories and singing songs about books is also a good way to make children more excited about books. Alternatively, showing your love for books by buying books as gifts for children is a great way to encourage them to read and treat books as cherished gifts.

Step 3: Generate Interest Through Book-Related Activities

Create opportunities for children to discuss and share their opinions about the books they’ve read by organizing discussions and book sharing sessions. In addition, parents can encourage children to participate in book reading competitions, write essays about books, or visit libraries and book exhibitions. Libraries and book exhibitions are wonderful places for children to explore more about the world of books.

Step 4: Incorporate Technology into Reading

Using book reading apps on smartphones or tablets is a suitable means to encourage children to read. There are many book reading apps available on mobile devices, making it easy and convenient for children to access books. Watching movies and animations based on books will help children combine visuals and words, creating interest and engagement while reading. E-books can be taken anywhere and allow easy content searching, making it convenient and quick for children to access books.

Step 5: Turn Reading into a Game

Designing games related to books, such as puzzles, vocabulary games, or games based on book stories, will encourage children to find reading more enjoyable. Children should also be rewarded after completing reading tasks. This helps set reading goals and rewards children when they achieve those goals. Furthermore, if you organize group reading sessions and create a regular reading group, children will be more excited and interested in discussing books.

Step 6: Choose Age-Appropriate and Interest-Driven Books

Take your child to a bookstore to choose books. Allowing children to experience and participate in the book selection process will provide them with more options and boost their confidence and excitement when reading. At the bookstore, parents and children can preview books to determine suitable content and avoid age-inappropriate material. It’s also an opportunity for parents to ask for their children’s opinions on books to learn more about their interests and passions.

Step 7: Explore the World Through Books

Read books on topics that interest your child. Finding books on subjects that children are passionate about can help them expand their knowledge and explore more about the world around them. Together, we can explore different types of books such as picture books, study materials, and fictional books. Take children to libraries or bookstores to discover various types of books and connect what they read to real-life experiences. Parents can discuss with children what they have read and establish a connection between the knowledge from books and their daily lives.
