Reading occupies a vital role in the life of a Human. Reading opens the doors of the treasures of knowledge and information. It is a significant means of introducing the child to the world that surrounds him. It is the very foundation on which the edifice of the child is to be built. Reading is one of the most key components of our language and it is an important tool for lifetime learning for all learners. In order to face the 21st century, education has to prepare these learners to adapt to social and technological changes that are taking place at an unprecedented rate. Education under these conditions depends mainly on language skill. In this context, reading especially is a resource for continued education, for the acquisition of new knowledge and skills, for gaining information through media, especially newspapers, books, radio, television, and the computers. ”Reading reflects the human nature”
Reading has no age from a kid to an old man reads their interest of contents. We all have a duty to make reading as a fun profession and Habit and here are the rules,
Rule #1: Read the right books.
It is more discouraging that trying to read Dostoyevsky when you’re better suited to Rick Riordan or Dr. Seuss. Be sure your child is reading books that are appropriate for his reading level, not books that are too challenging. Challenging equals discouraging, Use the 5 Finger Test to help.
Rule #2: Make reading a social experience
Research suggests that children who choose to read for fun see themselves as part of a community with other readers—discussing what they’re reading, making recommendations, even debating the value of an author’s intended message. This can start with a chat over something you’ve read aloud with your child (older children benefit from reading aloud experiences just as much as the younger ones). And if another person who reads is not at home, you can seek out book clubs in local libraries or book stores, or encourage your child to connect less formally with friends or cousins after school or via email.
Rule #3: Be a reading buddy.
If you see your child reading when you aren’t, grab your own book and cozy up (well, as close as he’ll let you) to read beside him. Prefer a scheduled approach? Try DEAR–Drop entirety and Read–sessions, in which the entire family reads at the same time.
Rule #4: Bring stories to life.
Read horse books before your child goes to horseback-riding camp, Little House on the Prairie before you tour a pioneer village, a bio of a favorite baseball or football player before you visit a sports hall of fame.
Rule #5: Build on your child’s passions, questions, and preferences
Studies show that when children are excited about a topic, they will keep reading. Even the most active children can get lost in a book—or a website, or an adventure-packed comic book that matches their passions and preferences. Kids’ librarians and bookstore owners are precious allies, but there are online resources as well, including the Children’s Choice Booklists published each year by the International Reading Association.
Rule #6: Be a reading role model
As children observe their parents reading books, emails, magazines and web pages, they are developing their first understandings of how reading-related activities can provide entertainment and fun, help people communicate and connect, and teach us something new.
