Getting Children to Read
We don't have too much problem with getting our children to read but for fun we signed up for the reading program at our library. They are offering prizes to children after 3 hours of reading. All of our children earned prizes this past week! Two of our older girls and our older boys actually accumulated 12 hours of reading! I thought that was pretty good considering all the chores and school work they have on top of everything else.
I think this is a good way to keep the children reading through the busy summer and have fun earning prizes. This is actually the first time we've ever participated in a library program.
What things do you do to get your children to read?
Luckily my kids like to read so it's not much of a struggle to get them to do it.
I read to my children now. I believe books are important. They, unfortunately, are being replaced by video games and movies. My husband also enjoys reading.
This wasn't bragging; I wanted to give an example of reading. Hooray for your kids, Theresa; that is awesome!! I would be one proud Momma!
