Creative Ways to Get Your Kids Reading

by Kaitlyn Leann Sanchez

For a while when my daughter was two, she didn’t want to sit still for a book but she LOVED baths. She didn’t want to get out, in fact. So one day I decided I’d bring some books to the bathroom and read to her there. She was already sitting in one place, and I needed something to occupy me when she kept asking to stay in longer. Bonus: a way to get her out was to say, “Okay, one more story, and it’s time to get out.” Boom!

He has nothing to do, so I just place a book or two back there and he loves to read (not sure how, I’d get nauseous). Thanks for sharing these tips!

      1. Well, at night I read longer books to him, so we just finished The Traveling Cat Chronicals (he wanted something with cats, and the main narrator is one), and we’re about to start on The Unteachables. His recent favorite PBs are Bethany Barton’s Trying to Love Math and Give Bees a Chance. He rereads those two over and over. So, cats…and non-fiction 🙂

  2. For The Alycat Series, we are doing Live interactive Storytimes with our life-size Alycat mascot and Storywalks at schools! 🐾 For my own kids, we are visiting places that relate to the stories we read—dessert-themed book = dessert place
