  • Start a book club or host a book exchange with another family.
  • Try reading somewhere new--the backyard, by flashlight in a tent, or during a break at the swimming pool.
  • Have your child read to you, over the phone to a grandparent, or to a pet.
  • Have a loved one who lives far away read a bedtime story to your child via Facetime, Zoom, Skype, or over the phone.
  • Read books that take place in other parts of the country or world. Find the country, city, or region on a map or globe. Look at pictures of these places online. Visit a restaurant that specializes in food from the area or cook a recipe from that region.
  • Several authors write books for a wide range of audiences. Neil Gaiman, Jacqueline Woodson, A.S. King--they all write books for kids and adults. Reading books written by the same author is a meaningful way to examine the scope and style of particular writers.

  • Try listening to podcast while cooking dinner or driving in the car.
