Growing up, reading was one of my favorite hobbies. My parents provided so many books for my brother and I to read, they were the one thing they could never buy too much of. Every weekend we made a trip to either the library or a book store. Scroll down for a few tips and tricks on how to raise a child who likes to read.

I knew when I had kids that I would want them to enjoy reading just as much I did, so I made sure to start reading to them as soon as they were born.  I’d love to say that each of my seven kids loves to get lost in a good book as much I did growing up, but truth be told it, it was always something I had to encourage them to do and get creative.

Create a cozy reading nook with throw blankets and pillows for reading time. Surround your kids with books as soon as they are born. I bought the kids books before they were even born and now I have a nice selection of books for kids of all ages!

Read together and make it a routine! Obviously bedtime is a kids favorite time to read, but get creative! Anytime is a good time to read to your kids. When Robert was only two, he’d sit in my lap and I would read whatever I was reading out loud to him.
