Behind every great reader is a patient parent or guardian who encouraged the love of books from a young age. It’s never too early to give your kid a head start in the literary department, and there are tons of engaging, fun reads available for children of every age. There are many books to get kids into reading that are informative, funny, and sure to spark a lifelong love of learning. And most are pretty entertaining for the adult readers, too.
When in doubt, try humorous books. Even the most reluctant reader will probably be won over by a good laugh. And if you’re reading aloud to your kid, then opting for silly voices for each character is never a bad idea. Chances are you will both be cracking up long after story time is finished.
Whether you have a baby, toddler, kid, or tween, there are books certain to suit her interests and reading abilities. Children’s literature has something for even the pickiest kid. Whether she’s into animals, sports, or adventure stories, there are definitely books available to capture her interests and imagination. By surrounding your kid with a variety of make-believe, nonfiction, and everything in-between, it won’t be long before she’s happy to read everything in sight.
