Here is a list of key points to take away after reading these articles:

  • Reading aloud nurtures a love for reading and strong bonds between readers and children. These two goals are more important than using reading aloud primarily to rush children to reading on their own or making a read aloud session into a tutorial session.

  • Childrenís areas of interest and comprehension level must be kept in mind, although sometimes dads may want to try to expand those interests and that comprehension level.

  • Minimize distractions. Turn off the TV or, if that is not possible, move as far away from it as possible.

  • All children benefit from being read to. Include infants and toddlers, and donít stop reading aloud once children can read on their own.

  • Take your time. The book isnít the main thing. The main thing is the discussion dads have with the children based on the book.

  • Dads expand childrenís skills, confidence and reading collection when they help them to produce their own reading materials.

Dad reminder: You can start to read to your kids at ANY age. It's fun for the kids and dad. It really is a dad duty!
