How to Tackle Delayed Literacy

Get Involved in Reading Groups

If sitting at home and reading a book doesn't appeal to your kid, look for ways to shake up her daily reading routine. A different setting or format might be enough to convince her that reading's not as dull as she thinks it is. Many local libraries have children's storytime groups. Getting out of the house as well as being among other kids who are excited about reading might boost your child's interest. Or, take matters into your own hands and host a kid equivalent of a book club with some of your child's buds, complete with snacks, crafts, and other activities to go along with the stories.
