Do you know a struggling reader?
Or a child who hates to read? Read aloud to them at least 30 minutes a day, and seek help immediately from a teacher trained in high quality reading remediation. You will be giving a child hope and the skills to succeed in life.
Having books readily available around the house is a great idea to encourage reading. I have a little box filled with story books next to my kids bed, as well as a box of story books next to their toys in the living room. You can come up with your own creative ways to have books around the house as well, like maybe even having a few in the car. A good idea is to have not just books but even comic books, magazines etc.. things that you know that will interest your child. If your child likes dinosaurs, butterflies, science or dolls, then make sure to have a few story books and magazines about those things. Your little one will love it, and remember that learning to read should always be fun and for children.
Encouraging your child to read and reading to them for at least 20 minutes each day is a great way to help your child/children fall in love with books and reading.
