The Importance of Reading

I have four children, and they all love books. My youngest, 5, asks almost daily to go to the library and generally picks out books on reptiles. I’m learning a lot about them and realized that some of this information will come in handy in one of the books I’m writing.

We all know it’s never too early to help a child develop interest in books and learning.

So, what are you reading? Which books draw in your children?

My children are aged between 47 and 54 (all men!). They are all engineers and read technical books.
When they were children they had bedtime stories, some I made up. They showed no interest in reading stories as such.
One is dyslexic but the condition was not recognised at that time. When I trained to be a teacher (mature student) it was beginning to be recognised. By then this son was a student/apprentice. My intervention and insisting on him being officially tested led to him being able to get a degree without O level English. Otherwise he would never have been awarded his BSc
My sons were not interested in reading when they were young — it was all hands-on stuff. Later my eldest read a bit of Fantasy. One reads his Bible daily, my youngest reads much technical stuff on the Internet, Engineering journals and all that! If any read novels I have no idea what they would be OR when they would have the time to do so!

I can’t tell you how excited I am when I hear about children developing a love of reading early on. Kudos to you for being a parent ready and willing to nurture a love words from a young age.
