STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Trying to get your child to read this summer? Chudney Ross will show you how!
Ross visited the KCAL 9 studios Wednesday to share summer reading tips. She is the owners of Books and Cookies, a children’s bookstore and cafe that recently opened in Santa Monica.
Summer Reading Tips
MAKE IT FUN.
Kids are told what to read all year, so summer is a great opportunity for kids to reconnect with the joy and excitement of getting lost in the pages of a book.
·Set your little one free in a library, bookstore and allow them to choose what appeals to them.
·Create a summer book bag that you can take on the go! Books are perfect for traveling, laying in the sun…
·Have a family book club. Even if your kids aren’t close in age, pick a theme that everyone can read about, such as the beach, summer camp or camping.
·Act out stories, put on a puppet show, write and make your own books.
Parents… don’t forget to pick up a summer reading book for yourself and be a good example of reading this summer.
