Reading might be the last thing on your child’s mind during the holidays, as they would rather spend time watching TV, playing video games and playing with their friends, however reading is a great way to spend quality time with your children.
If you can spare a moment whether during the day or at night before they go to bed, use it to catch up on some reading.
For parents who have smaller kids, pick books that are fun and full of adventure, this will help them stay interested and not stay bored.
For older children, you can ask them to choose books they like. There are also great resources online to select books from.
