How Can I Help My Child Love Reading?

The way to get kids to read and love it is to let them choose their own books. From Daniel Pennac's Better Than Life (1992), each year he would let his students in on the "secret" of reading all passionate readers know---but somehow kids are rarely told. The right to free access to lots of books and he believes he has the secret to developing a love for reading. Here are Daniels unusual rules:

1. The right to skip pages

2. The right not to finish a book

3. The right to reread as many times as you like

4. The right to browse

5. The right to read what you are interested in

6. The right not to read something

7. The right to escapism

8. The right to read anywhere

9. The right to read aloud

10. The right to not defend your taste
