March is Reading Month, Tip #5: Rethink your Library and Mix Books with Toys

Start rethinking your home library: mix some books along with toys.

When children are small, be sure to place tempting books along with toys. I placed board books in baskets in nooks around the house and on the toy shelves. Giving books real estate not only makes them easily available, it establishes that they have value.

When children are used to reaching for books, all you have to do is maintain rather than establish a habit.
