Encourage your kids to read by turning it into a fun social activity!
Book clubs, meetings where adults get together in person or online to discuss books that they have read, have gained popularity in recent years. Book clubs for kids and their parents, including mother-daughter book clubs, father-son book clubs, and parent-child book clubs, have also become popular. Book clubs are a great way for parents and children to share books together. By reading books and discussing them together, you can share special time with your child, while helping him develop a love of reading and important language and literacy skills.
Check out the PBS Parents site (http://www.pbs.org/parents/education/reading-language/reading-tips/book-... ) to find out how to start a parent-child book club, get tips for organizing and maintaining a book club and suggestions for ways to have great discussions, and learn about the benefits of parent-child book clubs. Your local library is also a great resource for deciding on your first book club book!
