How to Make Long Island Tea

Long island tea is a classic drink that you can get in almost any bar, a type of cocktail so old that nobody’s completely sure who even first created it. Despite its name, it’s not actually made using tea: in fact, it’s not even made in a similar way to tea…

Turn everything reading into fun!! We don't go to the library we go to the "library - store", you get things from the store you can enjoy at home... So library store! Oh and the Barnes & Noble is also the library store!! We also join reading programs in summer! I encourage my little one to brings books with him to daycare to share with his friends! I don't just read either... We have stories on he tablet where the words light up as it reads to follow along... And I order books with CDs from Scholastic! We can listen to stories while driving and he knows when to turn the page! My little man is only 3 but has a big love for books!! It's a treat to bring a book with us somewhere! Now come back and ask me that question again when he gets older! Hopefully the story doesn't change too much!

Books about the video games they like.

This used to be super easy for us. My 19 year old loved to read and my now 9 year old tween girl is slowly trying to move away from reading! So, I am on a big, yet sutle, push to get her back into reading. I am thinking of creating a reading nook somewhere in the house that's comfy and inviting. Good idea, Brittany of audio books. 

Creating a 'special' reading nook equipped with beanbag chairs/pillows and displaying books that have been read and those to read. Using themes is a biggie. And re-reading. Emphasis on the pleasure of reading and discussing, acting out parts or stop and fill-in 'what happens next'. Popcorn reading, pass the book, and everyone gets a chance to be the reader.

I read to my children I read to my daughter before she was born! When I pregnant with my son I didn't have books around to read to him! I have books now to read to him I read to him every chance I get! Still to this day even though my daughter is almost 6 she still
Loves me to read to her!
I always chose books with lots of pictures that looked colourful and attractive for my son to read. Even when he didn't know reading.. I would watch him flip the pages and stay busy looking at the pictures for like hours. Now I take him along to the book store or a library and he knows what we wants .. At times he picks and starts reading as soon as he grabs it. At home, there are times when I tell him to read me a story and he gladly jumps to pick his fav book. Night time is mostly a story time before he is off to bed.. So he looks forward to it:)

Also I have subscribed to a kids magazine that comes every fortnight.. Which he looks forward to reading and finishing before the next one arrives.. :)

Make reading fun so it doesn't seem like a boring chore.  

Expose your children to books every day.  Let them choose what they want to read, even “twaddle” (occasionally). Practice storytelling with story cards.  I like the eBoo Tell Me a Story cards.  Explore different libraries in different cities, states or countries.   I believe just by exposing kids to libraries helps them develop a love of reading and books in general.

I am very passionate about books, reading, and literacy so I love this question of the day!  My blog is dedicated to children's books and literacy:
