13 Tips for Young Writers / Day Two: Read, Read, Read

By Dr. K. Mark Hilliard

Day 2: Read, Read, Read!

If your children want to be writers, they should spend a lot of time reading different types of stores to learn what they like and to advance their skills in writing.

The more they read, the better they will write. They will learn new words, how to put sentences together, what interests them the most, different styles of writing, and information about new topics.

Action Item

Ask your child what he or she likes to read. Look online or in the library together for other books in that genre. Talk about how important reading is, and encourage time in the day for reading.
