my elder one enjoys the company of books, and she is a voracious reader while my lil one can't wait for the night as her father reads out a bedtime story to her everyday. I am lucky to pass on the tradition to my children quite early on.. Thanks for shraing this useful blog!

i have tried one idea nd it worked a lot. i used to spread a lot of buks in d bedroom at bedtime. initially my kids were resistant but now they usually read for at least half an hour before they sleep. now they themselves demand for buks...

I usually read out stories to my kids. The impact good books have on kids is remarkable. After reading I make my son narrate the story in his own words. He adds his bit of imagination and it turns out to be a great time for us.

There isn't a fixed age for developing love for books... but once your baby can sit and has become observant, you can start buying large books with lots of pictures.

Right from 6 months age ... i started buting board , colourful and big pictorial books and started showing my son and reading out loud and clear to him.... and slowly after 1 or 1and half year started with bedtime stories.... now it has become a habit. The trick is to keep books within kids reach... like the way we keep their toys, and also take them to book shopping as we take them every where else.... it is the same way they choose their favourite toys they will slowly start choosing books by themselves... Trust me ! it is not difficult. Now nearing 4 years, my son has not torn a single page from any of his books.
