Reading Tip #3: Parents' excitement can be infectious...in a good way!

As simple as Tip #3 may sound, many parents fail to do so. BE EXCITED about the book(s) your child chose. Make it a big deal that the book "looks so fun" or "ooh...good choice, I wish I saw that book first", etc... Each day, ask your child what happened in the book. Get involved in the story telling and let your child know you can't wait to find out what happens next. This will take maybe 5-10 mins each day of communicating with your kid about the book. In return, you will get a child who is excited to read the book as he/she wants to be able to tell you the story. When your child finishes the book, make sure you let him/her know that they did such a great job reading it so fast/well/with such good memory for detail and so on.
