Adopt these habits to make your kids lifelong readers
If grandparents live close by, make sure theyre reading with your child, as well. So if youre reading to a baby, hold him or her on your lap -- same goes for older children, if theyll let you. Read when your child is already in a good mood, and for younger babies and children, make sure theyre dry and fed. Especially with younger kids, this often adds a whole new dimension to the book. One idea is to read the book all the way through one time -- then revisit the story with a focus on pictures.
