The Reading Menu
The purpose of these ideas is to make reading – books – routine. Natural. Plan a family reading time (1/2 hour three times a week plus 1 hour on weekends?) – where you all settle into one room. They don’t have to actually read during that time – but no other entertainment is allowed.)
One mealtime a week the conversation is about what you have read. How did you pick that book? Was it what you expected? What did you like about it? Will you try to read something else by the same author? Favorite passage?
