Our good friends over at CincyNanny shared an article back in 2011 about encouraging kids to read. It was a great article and had a bunch of helpful tips and links in it. Thank you Trisha Knueven for writing this article. She includes a wide assortment of reading programs through the school systems so you can research them as well.
Have you ever ran into the dilemma of having a terrific reader who wants to read easier books? If so, I have some ideas for you! I recently read in a nanny newsletter some great ideas to encourage school agers to continue reading and the one that stuck out in my mind is to create a book club among the child’s friends. What a wonderful idea! Thank you Nanny Placement’s Newsletter for giving me that tip! Another thing that I like to do is read aloud playing “follow the leader.”
