  • My daughter likes the Little Quake series, so far she only has Little Quack Counts. But, it helps my daughter if I read it to her and point at the words with an animated voice. It also seems to help if she gets to choose which book we read together. She's going to be 3 on May 23 and she's starting to get the pointing and reading thing. I think it has a lot to do with the types of things he likes, like finding things (I spy), rhyming (Dr. Seuss), dogs (the spot books). Oh and the show Supper Why seems to help too.

  • There's a book called "How to Get your child to love reading" by Esme Codell. It have lots of ideas on how to accomplish just this. It also has lists of great books for kids. I'd also just pick books that have topics of interest to your child. Go to the library or bookstore and let him pick. Just be careful not to push too hard, you may drive your child away from reading..

  • There is a set of books called the BOB books that you can get at most any bookstore. They are REALLY easy books that begin with like one word per page in the first set.

    Help him sound things out by just writing them down and showing him how to put the sounds together. Start with word families like cat, hat, bat, mat. . . . dog, log, bog, etc. That way, he can see the pattern and begin to really make sense of the words.
