Here is a message to parents about encouraging children to love books:

Dear Parents,

Books are a wonderful way for children to learn, explore, and imagine. At our library, we believe that reading and a love of books are essential for personal growth and development. We encourage you to share the joy of reading with your children and help foster a love of books from an early age. Here are a few tips for helping your kids love books:

Read with your kids: One of the best ways to encourage a love of reading is to read with your children. Make it a special activity that you do together, and take turns reading pages or chapters.

Choose books that interest your child: Let your child pick out books that they are interested in, whether it's a topic they're studying in school or a favorite hobby. This will help them feel invested in the reading process.

Set aside time for reading: Make reading a regular part of your child's routine by setting aside dedicated time for reading each day. Whether it's before bed or after dinner, establishing this habit will help your child see reading as an important and enjoyable activity.

Encourage asking questions: Encourage your child to ask questions and make connections while reading. This will help them engage with the material and think critically about what they're reading.

We hope these tips will help your child develop a love of reading and books. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us at the library if you have any questions or need suggestions for books that your child might enjoy.
