But I will tell you this! The door to his room is right by the door to my daughter's room. I have noticed that he makes sure his door is open at reading time. I also have noticed that he pipes in and makes all sorts of comments about what we are reading! He expounds on the non-fiction topics at hand so as to teach his sister a bit more about what is in the book. He also comments on the fiction. So ha! He still enjoys reading time! He still loves to be read to just as he always has. He just doesn't want to admit it! I truly think and hope that some of my children's fondest childhood memories will be of us reading together.
Read to your children EVERY night! Read to them no matter if they can read on their own or not, and read to them no matter how old they are. Read four or five smaller books or pages from non-fiction books on subjects that interest them. You can even read to them about a topic that you would like for them to learn more about. Not only are they learning and developing stronger reading skills, you are building a bond between you and your child that will never be broken.
