How Can I Encourage My Primary-Grade Child to Read?
Ransbury, Molly Kayes
The first section of this pamphlet discusses factors that influence reading interest, such as age, sex, grade level, exposure to books, availability of printed materials, reading ability, identity, and reward. The second section offers such suggestions for stimulating interest in reading as knowing your child, being aware of your example, encouraging wide reading, encouraging library visits, guiding your child's ability to scan, being a good listener, being willing to share, and providing reading-related activities (story writing, reading games, role playing, and story comparisons). The final section offers a list of books for children and for adults who are interested in helping children to read. (TS)
