I understand that you would like to create an interest for reading in your child. Here are a few suggestions - 1. Role model yourself and do spend some reading time every day along with your spouse. Do share some excepts of what you read and the pleasure of reading a book. 2. Engage in a conversation from time to time to understand your child's interest areas, and then try and find good books in that area. For e. g. if your child shows interest in auto, do find an interestign reading on the history of automobiles and do introduce the same to him. It doesn't have to be academics only that he starts with. 3. Enrich your child's surroundings with various learning opportunities to explore through books. Encourage questions/enquiry. Try and make sure that you are able to help with answers, logic with examples with reference from the books around him. Also, pls try and use books instead of internet to explain unless there is no other option. 4. Help your child's attention by making his surroundings and the situation playful. Please do read this blog on handy ideas for improving concentration levels. I hope this helps.
