Six ways to get your children hooked on books
1 Share the pleasure of reading. Read books aloud to each other or download audiobooks and listen to them together.
2 Encourage reading for pleasure in any form – it doesn’t matter what they read, as long as they enjoy it.
3 Take them to the library and give them lots of time to choose the books they like.
4 Charity shops can also be fun places to browse for books.
5 Allocate your child some space and time for reading when there is nothing else to do.
6 Take a book or two with you wherever you go.
