What you can do to help your child become a reader:

1. Read aloud every day to your child. Twenty minutes is not enough.

2. Model reading. Be a reader. Let your child see you read. Talk about what you are reading at the dinner table.

3. Let your child interrupt you when you are reading aloud. Encourage "dialogic reading" which is asking questions and encouraging discussion while you are reading.

4. Visit your local library frequently. Sign your child up for his/her own library card as soon as he/she is old enough.

5. Turn off your t.v. most of the day. Make t.v. watching a big deal-something to look forward to.

6. Talk to your child.

7. Children under five are encouraged to sign up for Dolly Parton's Imagination Express to receive a free book each month. Sign up at your local library or by visiting http://www.imaginationlibrary.com.
