Reading Books More Than Once is Good for Early Readers?

Each time a familiar book is read it becomes easier for a child to combine reading skills. Rereading the same books is a lot like doing the same sports drill over and over.

Words that were difficult the first few times a book was read become easier each time. The process of sounding out becomes easier and words are stored in the reader's memory for future reading.

My own children had boxes of favorite books for rereading. You can help your child by having books your child likes available for rereading and encouraging your child to read everyday.

Some of the best places to find books are garage sales and used stores.

The trick to getting children to read books more that once is to have them choose their favorite books. Many books should be made available. If a child doesn't love a book, it won't be one they will want to read again.
