Family Book Club

As a parent, you are your children’s biggest role model. Your kids watch what you do, listen to the things you say, and often mimic your behavior (whether you want them to or not…J). When you show them that you love to read, it has a big impact on their own feelings about reading. In addition, when children have positive experiences with books and reading when they are young, it really helps them to develop a lifelong love of reading.

Because of this, I got so excited when I came across an article recently that talked about how you can start a family book club at home. What a perfect way to have fun together as a family while reinforcing that love of reading! If your kids are still really young, don’t worry; the article suggests ways in which you can cater your club to your own family’s needs, even if you have babies and toddlers. Get ideas from the article here, and let me know if you try this. I’d love to hear how it goes!
