Good ideas here for fostering a sense of ownership and delight in the books that allow for the experience of reading. Give the kids their own library full of their own books, be they new or found at tag sales or from the library. Print off bookplates to designate ownership and pride in ownership. Work together to organize the books as the child wants.
If books are important in your home and in your child’s own space, it’s a good step toward making reading an important component of your child’s life.
AND, readingrockets.org is a terrific resource for parents about books covering a wide range of subject areas and a wide range of ages- bookmark it!
