By Madonna Camille Mamuri

Who doesn't want their kids to read? Know how to make your kids love this excellent hobby. Jim Trelease said in his book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook", that readers have become endangered species. But as a parent, you can make a difference. You can make your kids love reading-a skill that will prove to be a valuable asset in education and in life. Here are some tips to instill in your kids some book lovin' traits:

Read to your children.

Set a regular reading time with your kids. Ideally, it should be before bedtime.

Make books available.

Think about this, if you do not have any books around, how will your kids cultivate their love for stories?

Visit the library

Make your kids experience going to the library. This is will be an educational trip and will be the foundation of his reading values.

Be a good role model

From time to time, show your kids that you too, read. As they say, you should always set an example.

Cut Back on TV

When television is not available, your kids will turn to other things that will entertain them. And the most possible of which is reading.

Reward Reading.

This is self explanatory. Rewards system with kids usually work since they have something to look forward to. Reward them with something that drives them.

Support reading programs in school.

There is no better way to show your advocacy for reading than by supporting their programs in school. This way, you help children other than your kids, you show a good example and you help the world have more readers!
