TIP 1 - Helping Big Kids

How do I get started?

Listen to, read with and read to your child.

Start by talking about the book, the pictures, and the words before you ask your child to read aloud.

Read what interests your child. If your child is interested in basketball then that is the best place to start. Find books, brochures, websites, magazines, songs about basketball. Be excited about your child’s interests.

Borrow books from friends, the school or library.
