Instilling a Love of Reading in Children at a Young Age – Scholastic Giveaway


This post is sponsored by Scholastic. All thoughts are my own.

I love to read, and have always hoped that it would be something that my children inherit as well. When I learned that we had speech issues early on, I knew that implanting in them a love of words would be even more important. The more they practice reading now, the less they will struggle with it later on down the road.

The difficult part came in figuring out how to foster that love of reading I wanted so badly for them to have. The most important thing was choosing the correct books. I needed to find books that were both age appropriate, and that would capture their attention and keep it for the duration of the story.

That’s were Scholastic came in.

Scholastic’s “The Story Starts Here” picture book campaign came about due to Scholastic’s desire to introduce their picture books to new parents and caregivers, as well as educators and librarians. They hoped that by doing this, they could help to ignite a love in reading in a child, which starts on day ONE! The book offerings are so diverse and unique that there truly is something that would fit each and every child.

Our personal favorite story was “If You’re A Robot And You Know It” by David A. Carter. This is a fun and creative spin the classic version “If You’re Happy and You Know It. Along with the traditional clapping their hands, the book instructs children to do fun things like shooting laser beams out of their eyes! They had a blast! Even better, the book comes with a free downloadable song by the dynamic Musical Robot Team. The song correlates with the book, and the children can see along as they turn the pages. The pop-ups that showed the robots going through the movements kept them alert. This book was fun for the entire family!

Scholastic has so many great options that help get young ones involved. I encourage you to and your family to choose one.
