  Commitment to Learning

Reading for Pleasure | Young person reads for pleasure three or more hours per week.

TAKE ACTION:

  • Bring a young person to look for books at garage sales, rummage sales, and second-hand stores.
  • Ask children to read to you as they learn to read.  Show them that you are excited and proud about their reading.
  • Ask a teenager to recommend a favorite book.  Read the book and start a discussion later about the characters’ values.
  • Give your child books and magazine subscriptions as birthday and holiday presents.
  • Make it a family ritual to read together in the evening – with the television, cell phones, and computers turned off.
