Get your tot hooked on books by taking his books from his room and putting them where he usually stays during the day. The more he sees them, the more he will want you to read to him. He may even attempt to “read” (I know, it is pretend 🙂 , but hey, it is a start!) all by himself!
Get him excited with this role-reversal activity! Go on with your routine of story-telling sessions, but this time, ask him to read to you! Of course, he will just try to make his own story by looking at the pictures, but give him his full attention! Be excited and enthusiastic and give him your full attention. React to his story as he “reads” it. After he is done, commend him for a job well done, treat him to something he likes, give him a small prize and preserve this wonderful moment by taking a picture!
You can have his picture cartoonized or caricatured in digital file by joining my Digital Photofile from Photo Jeepney Giveaway here! (Open Worldwide Until August 16, 2013)
Have fun reading with the little one!
