Is it teething time for your little one?
Turn reading into an enjoyable activity that your child will grow to love with these fun games:
 
Bond over breakfast
You should take advantage of every moment you have together to teach your child to read. Show her letters or words on a cereal box or ask her to pick out letters from her name on the jar of marmalade.

Develop a love of the library
Your local library is the source of a vast array of reading material and it’s free! Bring your child along for storytime hour or create your own in the quiet corner of the library.
 
Find books of their favourite movies
Finding books that accompany film or TV programmes is one of the best ways to give your child a love of reading. Whether your daughter loves Peppa the pig, Dora the explorer or your son is a big Toy story fan, you’ll be sure to find books suitable for many ages and reading levels.

Offer rewards
Set a goal to see how many pages, chapters and books your child can read every week. Make up a reward chart and place stickers after each goal reached. Challenge her to a reading contest and see how many books she can read in a certain month! Maybe reward her with a trip to a bookshop or a pretty bookmark for her efforts.
 
Planning for holidays
Children get a real kick out of family activities. So, whenever next your going on holidays or away for a weekend get your children involved in helping you plan. Spend some time looking researching together in books and on the internet. See if they can find your holiday location on a map or online. 

Teach your child to read recipes
Get your child involved your child in weekly meal planning by selecting a recipe together and getting her to help find the items off a shopping list.
