Letting kids read: some advice

Read this in THE GUARDIAN:

THE READING LIST
Five tips for parents on how to make happy young readers.


■ Don't make reading a chore; it is not "good" behaviour.

■ Let your child choose their own reading from a handful of selected books.

■ Don't edit their choice by the age range on the back: see what they fancy.

■ Don't tell them what you enjoyed when you were their age.

■ Stand back and let your child talk directly to the librarian or bookseller.
