10 Tips to Keep Kids Reading (Boek)



by Carole Boston Weatherford

1. Visit the library often. Have your child sign up for a library card and reading incentive programs.

2. Delve into African-American history and culture with Coretta Scott King Award-winning books.

3. Read a children's book based on a movie; then, view the film. Compare the two.

4. Take audio books on the road.

5. Take a hint about your child's interests. Satisfy the curiosity with books about science, geography, sports and technology. Create hands-on experiences with how-to and hobby books.

6. Introduce your child to great African-Americans through biographies.

7. Read a comic book or graphic novel of a classic, such as Homer or Hamlet. Many libraries' collections include these books.

8. Get your child hooked on a series. Cheetah Girls and Ziggy and the Black Dinosaurs both feature African-American characters.

9. Pick up a children's poetry collection or visit a children's poetry website. Read aloud a poem a day.

10. Read a book together. Take turns reading aloud. You could even start a family book club.
