Growing into Readers
- Pick a special place for your child’s books like in a cozy corner of your child’s bedroom, or in the living room or family room where your family gathers. Help your child to arrange her books a unique order. Put his/her favorite books, books about animals, or holiday books all together. Use whatever method will help him/her most easily find the right book for every moment.
- Borrow books from The West Bloomfield Township Public Library. Go to the Youth Services section and spend time with your child reading and selecting books to take home and put in her special spot. You might even create a special space just for library books, so that they don’t get mixed up with your child’s own books.
- When you are finished reading the book, be sure to talk about what happened in the story, retell specific details and even re-read favorite parts.
