A few quick tips on how to encourage a love a reading for a little one in your life:
* Make sure books are easy to access: Whether or not you own many children's books, I'm a huge advocate of make weekly trips to your local library. There's so much to explore and get excited about. And if you can help your child get their own library card, it makes the outing even more exciting.
* Find FUN books: Not all books are equal. Search out books that are great page-turners. Amazing illustrations are always a big plus.
* Don't be afraid to explore non-fiction: Some kids prefer books that are all about FACTS. Help your little one explore titles about real-world topics like dinosaurs, outer space, sports, animals, etc.
* Be a reader yourself: Your example makes all the difference!
