Each year millions of us make New Year’s resolutions. Why not celebrate this New Year by resolving to make reading a priority activity in your home! Here are some ideas:

  • I will set aside regular times when the family reads together. (You can read to younger children and with youngsters who can read on their own.)

  • I will organize regular family trips to the library and make sure my children have library cards.

  • I will limit my children’s television/video viewing and encourage reading as an alternative activity.

  • I will let my children see me reading so that they will know I think reading is important.

  • I will visit bookstores with my family.

  • I will read some of the books my children are reading so that I will know what they enjoy.

  • I will give books, ebook, or magazine subscriptions to my children as birthday or holiday gifts.

  • I will make sure that my children have access to many different types of reading materials in the homeβ€”books, ebooks, magazines, or, even, newspapers.

  • I will help my children create a special place for their favorite books.
