Every night we give our kids hours to read before they have to fall asleep. We’ve been doing this since before they could read, when they could only look at picture books or use that time to draw, color or scribble half-words in a child sized journal. We set out to raise readers and that is exactly what has happened. I didn’t push, didn’t set goals and didn’t compare. But I definitely gave them time. Lots of it. And still do.
