How To Develop Your Child's Interest In Reading
Copyright © 2006 Sadie Chenton

Reading is the most important skill a child will ever learn. By 
developing an interest in reading, and thereby developing the 
desire to learn to read, you will be giving your child the gift 
to all knowledge. A child who loves to read and reads well can 

The interest in reading is developed at a young age. Make time 
to read bedtime stores. Make time at other time of the day, if 
possible, to sit and read to your child. Simple, easy to 
understand children's books with colorful pictures as best 
for the youngest children.

Not only can you point to the words you are reading as you read, 
but you can help the child learn recognition of objects and 
colors by interacting during the reading of the book.  Point to 
the picture of a duck and tell the child, "This is a duck. The 
duck is yellow".  After a few times of doing this, point to the 
duck and ask the child what that picture is and what color the 
animal is. Every soon, after grasping language skills, the child 
will not wait for questions, but tell you "that duck is yellow!"

Select books that teach a lesson about life. Books that teach 
children how to interact with other children without fighting; 
books that teach about giving or sharing, are good selections. 
Books that teach about responsibilities - how to cross the 
street, never to get in a stranger's car, never to steal, and 
so one - are also great choices.

Children's classics are excellent choices and may well become 
family heirlooms that you child will read to their child years 
down the road. You will soon develop a child that can't wait to 
learn to read.

I'd like to share a small personal antidote with you. I was 
raised as a child who was taught an interest in reading. When 
Mother cooked, she sometimes got out a book and it told her what 
to do to make good food.  When Dad wanted to know when the 
Christmas Parade or another event was going to occur, he read 
the newspaper.  I had realized that you could learn anything you 
needed to know if you could read. Mother had taught me to read 
a few words, and I could go through some of my favorite books 
by memory, but I couldn't pick up a big book and read it.

I went to school on my first day of 1st grade and came home 
crying my eyes out, telling Mother I wasn't going back to that 
bad school.  After much questioning and concern on Mom's part, 
she finally dragged out of me that I considered the school bad 
because I had not learned to read on the first day!  She had to 
explain to me that by the end of the school year, I would be 
able to read.

This short story is to emphasis that you want to raise the kind 
of child who truly can't wait to learn to read.  A lifetime of 
reading provides not only knowledge, but fun, relaxation, and 
true job.
