Reading habits need to be developed in children from an early age as it is a widespread belief that early readers are better learners. You can start reading stories to your baby when he/she has been in the womb for seven months. Fix a regular time to read stories to your children. When they are older, provide them with a lot of reading material. Develop the habit of going to bookstores together and selecting the right book for the young learners. Play reading games with them; make them read road signs, newspapers etc. Play word games with them. Openly appreciate them on their reading achievements.
