Reading for Families: Helping Your Child Learn

Parents and guardians are a child’s first and most important teachers, and helping your child learn to read is one of the most important things you can do. This is because reading opens the door to lifelong learning. Set aside time each day to read to your child. Read all kinds of things, like storybooks, poems, magazine and newspaper articles, non-fiction books, comic books and letters. Continue reading to your child even after they have learned how to read.

Reading aloud fosters a love of reading and builds your child’s vocabulary. Ask your child to read aloud. Take turns reading pages or using different voices for different characters. Talk about words, stories and books. Visit a public library, read recipes, create grocery lists and play word games. Be creative, and have fun!

Available in English, Chinese and Punjabi.
