New Year’s Resolutions for 2019: 5 Simple Ways to Read More with your Child

| Reading Aloud

Have you already made your New Year’s resolutions for 2019? If you haven’t settled on one, think about making reading a part of your new year routine.

Read a book—here, there, and everywhere!

Reading aloud doesn’t have to be limited to your home or only at nap time or bedtime. If you’re a parent of a young child, you know every reading experience does not look the same. Though it may seem like a waste of time, your child still benefits from hearing you read aloud to them even when it seems they’re not paying attention or are distracted by their surroundings.

To make life a little easier, here’s a list of a few resolutions to help add more reading to your and your child’s day, even the days you are on the move. To download or print these New Year’s Resolutions, click on any of the images below for a PDF version!
