Those who read are more knowledgeable, understanding, open-minded, and expressive. If you'd like your child to develop these characteristics, below you'll find tips to help them start reading right away.

How to Introduce a Child to Reading

  1. Your child should first be aware of what reading is. To help them understand, read with them on a daily basis, and show them the connection that exists between the words you say and the words in the book.
  2. Once your child knows what reading is, teach them about letters and their sounds. To make this easier, first teach them the ABCs (you can sing the song with them), then move on to teaching them about the sounds letters make, and finally, help them realize that certain letter combinations can produce new sounds.
  3. When your child starts recognizing certain letter combinations and the sounds they make, employ rhymes with those same combinations to help them quickly identify how those new words are pronounced. The more they do this, the easier it will be for them to begin reading confidently.
  4. The next level in reading is understanding what is being read. To help your child in this respect, you can simply ask questions about the material they just went over. This will help them be more critical, instead of just sounding out letter combinations.
  5. Lastly, remember that this is a process and that it should be practiced often in order for your child to progress efficiently. Moreover, do not lose your patience, and don't force your child to read complex texts if they're not ready yet.
