1. Read with a Flash Light

Reading with a flash light is gimmicky but fun! Shine-a-Light books are PERFECT. They are engaging and the perfect books to read with a flashlight. Designed specifically to be read with a light to help see hidden images on each page, there are books for children of all interests and age levels!


2. Arrange a Book Tasting!

Not sure which books will peak their interest? Host a Book Tasting! Set up books from several different genres and let them choose one to read. You can do this yourself, OR schedule a Book Tasting event! Learn more HERE!!

4. Closed Captioning

Do your kids watch television? Mine sure do! One way to reinforce reading, even while watching television is to turn on the Closed Captioning feature. It works! For added fun, watch cartoons in a foreign language.
