  • Encourage your child to re-read their favourite books
  • Ask your child questions about the story you've just read
  • Be patient when your child is try ing to sound out words
  • Pick books that are at the right level for them
  • Read together! Take turns reading pages
  • Be a reading role model - if your child sees you reading they will want to imitate you.
