Tips to support your child with reading
There are many reasons children may say they don't want to read: some children find it hard to read the words on the page and therefore struggle to understand the meaning of what they read; some don't like reading for long periods of time; and some children simply haven't yet found a genre that they love!
Whatever they say...there's always a way we can help to encourage children's love for reading. From family members reading to children, introducing them to new genres, taking them to the library, to simply talking about the books they read; all of these strategies are tools that will help to enthuse your children about reading.
Below are some links to useful websites that will help to support you when reading with your children. Please have a click around and see if there's anything you could try.
Alternatively, ask your child's teacher - there may be something they have found that captures your child's interest.
