10 Favorite Tips for Encouraging Kids to Read | Treasure Kai | Technology in (Spl) Education | Scoop.it

Karen Robertson, Author of children's books wrote a detailed  list of tips on how to encourage kids to read.   Check it out..

Motivating kids to read is not always a simple task, so here are some fun ways to help encourage your kids to find fun in reading and to actually someday even enjoy it.

1. Leave books scattered around your home and car. I know we like our homes tidy but you’d be amazed how often books get picked up and looked at when they are within reach! This is my all time favorite tip!
