Listening to a book is just as good as reading! Show your child that a lot of people, kids and adults alike, enjoy books by going to your library's story-hour or a book reading.

Additionally, if a kid-favorite author is coming to town for a book signing, take her to meet the author and treat her to a newly signed copy.
