Family Reading Time at Young Library

A quiet time for family members to read on their own may be the only chance a busy parent gets to read the paper. For this activity you'll need your own reading materials and reading materials for your children.

What to do:
  • Both you and your child should pick out something to read.
  • Don't be concerned if your child picks materials that are easier than their school reading books. Practice with easy books (and the comics) will improve their fluency.
  • If you subscribe to a children's magazine, this is a good time to get it out. There are many good children's magazines, and youngsters often get a special thrill from receiving their own mail.
  • Relax and enjoy while you each read your own selections.

A family reading time shows that you like to read. Because you value reading, your children will too. Book Club | Sign-Up!

First of all, the extra reading expands their vocabularies. It also shows them how different writers put down their thoughts leading to better writing skills. And teens who read more serious literary works gain skills in handling complex ideas. The more teens read, the more information they pick up.
