Episode Info: I’m willing to bet that if you’re reading this, you’re hoping to raise kids who love reading. Think back for a second. Were the books you were assigned in school the same books you stayed up reading under the covers, late at night with a flashlight? When you were done writing the book report or the essay, did you eagerly start the book over, only to dive back into the utter delight of losing yourself in the story? Would you say those books became one of your childhood’s sweetest delights? Or were you just relieve to have “done” the book? See, all kids love stories when they are younger. Loving stories isn’t the problem. The problem arises when reading becomes something we do for school—for a grade or an assignment. The problem arises when our kids start to see reading as something on their list of to-do’s, rather than as one of life’s sweetest delights. Today, we’re turning that on its head. See, we have the opportunity to engage our kids with books differently– in a way that helps them love a book more after they’ve read it (rather than relieved that they’re done with the book). It’s simple and doable, and on this episode of the Read-Aloud Revival, I’m breaking it down. Want to help your kids love reading? Don’t miss this one. In today’s show, you’ll hear: 4 simple steps you can take to change the way your kids interact with books… for the better why this will be a game-changer for your child’s reading life If you’d like a one-page printable guide that breaks down the four steps I talk about in this episode, just text REVIVAL to the number 33777, or enter your email below: Get the Printable 4-step Guide Want my notes on this one so you don't forget the 4 steps?
