Kids love books, and they’re especially fond of reading stories to each other. Reading with your kids can be a wonderful experience, but it’s important that you encourage them to keep reading over time. These six children’s books will inspire your child to read more often and develop a love for books:
One of the most popular children’s books is The Lorax by Dr. Seuss. The book tells the story of a young boy who goes on a quest to find out why there are so many trees in their neighborhood and discovers that they’re being cut down to make fun things like toothbrushes and cars. He then sets out to stop this from happening, but he doesn’t know how!
The message behind this book is environmentalism: children should know about how important it is for them to protect our planet so we can all live here together peacefully together as one big family (or group).
Goodnight Moon is a classic children’s book that has been read to children since the 1940s. It’s written in rhyme, and it’s easy to read for young children. This book encourages your child to love reading, because it’s about a bunny who says goodnight to everyone in his village before going home for the night. Your little one can easily follow along with the story as you read it together!
What’s the best thing about this book?
- It’s a collection of poems and drawings by the late Shel Silverstein. The poems are funny, silly and sometimes profound. They’re also written in rhyme (which can be hard to read out loud). The illustrations are just as memorable: they feature an array of animals in various states of undress or discomfort.* In short, this is one of those books that will have you laughing out loud while reading it to your kids!
- The musical adaptation has been nominated for several Tony Awards–so go see it if you get a chance!

Reading is good for children and can help them learn to read, even without formal instruction or classes.
Reading to your children is a great way to help them learn to read. They’ll also grow up with an appreciation for books, which will help them succeed in school and beyond.
Reading aloud provides the opportunity for you and your child to talk about what you’re reading together–and this can have a huge impact on both of your lives! Reading together makes it easier for children to understand what they see, hear, smell and taste; it helps them develop vocabulary skills; it teaches empathy and compassion by showing how everyone has different experiences; it gives you something fun as well as educational (if you’re willing).
Children love to read and they find it easier than adults. This means that you should spend more time reading to your children than other activities such as watching TV or playing video games. It also means that you need to be involved in their reading as much as possible, so don’t let them go off on their own – especially not during bedtime!
