Explore Different Formats and Genres

With today's technology, there is a plethora of reading material available, both online and in book form, so think outside the box when considering what your child might enjoy. Joke books, seek-and-find books, mystery, science fiction, comics, graphic novels, and nonfiction about typical kid-favorite topics (think: dinosaurs) are all great places to start. Make sure they are age-appropriate and the right reading level so your child doesn't become frustrated or bored.
