Encourage a Love of Reading

There are so many amazing books out there to buy for anyone in your life. One of the things I did to encourage a love of reading in my home, was to always have a bookshelf full of books. My kids are 17, 13, and 11 now so we don’t have a little kid bookshelf anymore, not to mention we’ve left stuff behind in between two different moves to being without a home. I do, however, hope to get another shelf full of learning books for our homeschool sessions.

The best way to encourage a love of reading is to have two hours per day open for no electronics. Have the kids understand that they must do something other than electronics each day. Set a specific time that this will happen. During this two hour block, no one in the family can be on electronics, this will be hard for us work at home moms, but it can be done.

When you make it a point to have a two-hour block every day for electronic detox and have a bookshelf full of books and craft supplies in the home, you’ll quickly find that your kids start to find a love of reading, regardless of their age.

How do you encourage independent reading?

I have three very different children. My oldest has always been fond of books. Even at the young age of just two, she was caught reading an encyclopedia in the back of my van. This child is a natural-born book lover. My middle child has never been into reading. For most of his life, he was very against the idea of reading, but I did read to him every night. Now, he’s 13 and prefers graphic novels. My youngest son hates to read, I think it’s mostly because it’s hard for him to pay attention for long periods. I found with my youngest, books like the I Survived Series work great for him.

With all that being said, it wasn’t easy to figure out how to encourage independent reading with my younger two kids. They simply weren’t born with a natural love of books, even though I read to them every night for the brunt of their early childhood years.

Supplies for a Reading Corner

Find a list of supplies below to set up your own reading corner in the home, making it easier for kids to enjoy independent reading time.

If your kids aren’t natural-born readers, but you want to encourage them to read independently, then here are some simple ways to encourage this:

  • Visit your local library, using your free library card to let your kids select a few books to try to read.
  • Host your own at-home play, where you reenact scenes from your kids’ favorite books.
  • Make time for independent reading, such as a 1-2 hour slot per day for the family to read independently at the same time.
  • Create a reading corner, equipped with a bookshelf, a variety of books, a reading light, and a comfy chair or beanbag.
  • Be the example by reading on your own to show the kids that even adults enjoy independent reading time.

  1. Definitely saving this so that I could take a look when I need to buy one. Will include this on my things to buy for my future kids.

  2. It’s really important for the kids to develop a love for reading. It helps their comprehension, their knowledge, and their imagination among other things. Love your recommendations!

  3. Books make life better! I just bought one of these books for my spouse last week. There are a couple of other ones I think my kids would like.

  4. I’ve always loved reading, and am doing my best to pass it along to my children. I need to add these to my reading list! Most I haven’t read!

  5. Yes I totally agree carving out at least two hours a day and let the kids focus on just reading. my 12-year-old loves to read but my nine-year-old loves to collect the books and she barely reads them LOL. This is a great list and I will go through each book to see what I can gather up for my two daughters. I definitely am on a mission to encourage them to read more. Thank you for sharing this.

  6. My daughter loves Diary Of a Wimpy Kid. These are great book suggestions. I will definitely take some of your suggestions!

  7. My youngest son loves the Diary of a Whimpy kid or books that are similar. I know he asked for one for Christmas and I thought about getting him one. But I’m glad I didn’t because apparently it has been on his list for a long time and someone else got it. 🙂

  8. Oh my goodness! I didn’t realize that Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire illustrated edition was already out! I feel like the worst fan now!!

  9. What a fantastic selection of books! And different genres as well! Thanks for curating this list for us!

  10. So many fun titles. I need to get that Pooping Pooches for my daughter’s boyfriend. We love giving each other gag gifts and this one would be perfect!

  11. These look like some amazing books. I see some that my daughters love. Guts is one of my youngest daughters favorites. She loves the whole series.

  12. This is a wonderful and very detsiled list that you have provided. I like to read but just don’t have the time.

  13. I love a good book, there is nothing quite like disappearing off to a different world within the pages. I’ll have to check some of these out as I could do with some new read ideas.

  14. I always need a good list like this because I do not read too much. My son will love so many of these and giving a book is always a good idea
