Getting your Child to Love Reading

Reading for fun can aid in enriching the education of students outside of the classroom. For some students, reading is seen as a chore, and is done only when necessary for homework. Giving your child creative ways to enjoy reading could help change this mindset. In this video, learn from Literary Clinic professor Dr. Elish-Piper easy ways to get your child to love reading.  

Dr. Elish-Piper explains how popular books that have been made into movies can spark an interest in reading. If your child loves using their smart phone, she offers ways to use technology to boost reading habits even further. A love of reading can help develop creativity and studying skills, which are essential for students to grow and learn effectively.
