Reading with kids SA Kids Newsletter Nov 2017

Dearest readers,
Reading has always been this huge comfort to me, a way to travel to magical places or even just the other side of the world without breaking the bank, it’s a place to escape to when you need some time to yourself. As a kid I read quite a bit, I plowed my way through the Nancy Drew series, the Sweet Valley series and then I was introduced to the magical world of Harry Potter and my life was changed, I’d found home. 
I think I got this love for reading from my dad because even though my mom will read on occasion she doesn’t really devour books like him and I do. He always brought me books home from his travels abroad and encouraged me until I got hooked in. Now I binge read books like some people  binge on chocolate.
When the unicorn was born I started collecting books for him, all sorts of ones because I hoped that he would learn to love them as much as I do. Now the thing is, his generation has grown up with complete access to the internet, and it’s so much easier to watch the movie than sit down and read a book, thus convincing him that reading is awesome has been a bit more of a challenge than I had hoped it would be, for a long time he just wasn’t interested. But then a few months back I caught him reading a book on his own accord and I thought hah! I didn’t push it but I did ask him about what he was reading and he happily explained it.
Has he found it? Is he going to be a reader like mom? I’m not sure yet but I will keep encouraging it, buying him books that he seems to take an interest in because there are so many benefits to reading; increased vocabulary being your main one and as with sight learning it helps improve your spelling because you are seeing the words repeatedly. It’s also fantastic for encouraging imagination. Sure they can watch a cartoon but that is someone else’s imagination, they aren’t forming the characters in their minds and building the worlds around them.
All the magical reading dust
