When your kids reach the age of 3-4, they’re enrolled into kindergarten and begin their academic journey. Those cute little toddlers are all ready to go to school. There, they learn new things and one in particular is learning to read and write.
For some kids, learning to read is the more daunting task while to others it’s as fun as it gets. From the first time they recite the alphabet in funny accents till when they’re seen reading storybooks with pictures and sweet fairy tales, there’s no denying the fact that reading to any child is an experience they would never forget (same goes for the parents too).
But sometimes your kid could be having issues learning to read. This could be because he’s not as interested as others, or isn’t quick to understand the words yet or quite simply doesn’t love the idea of staring into pages with several letters scrambled together to create strange words.
One way to solve this issue is to first look for their interests. Your kids won’t learn to read if they don’t like it in the first place and could often end up jumping into fits of tantrums if forced. So, take your time to see what gets your kids excited. It could be a book about animals, fairy tales or pop-ups, a sing-along book or whatnot.
It could also be a book about the laziest cat with a craving for Italian cuisine. Yup, we’re talking about Garfield. Any kid would instantly get engrossed when they read about an orange cat with a big belly that only accepts lasagna, as well as his oddly cute relationship with his owner and dog brother. Yeah, they’re in for a good laugh when you give it to them.
You could even switch things up later with some stories about Peanuts and Calvin and Hobbes!
