Welcome to Hands-On Education, where we aim to provide primary school teachers and home educators with quick and helpful information in a fun and engaging way. Today, we're going to explore some tips for encouraging children to read, specifically focusing on the Early Years Foundation Stage.

One great way to get kids interested in reading is by setting up book challenges. For example, you could challenge them to read one book a week or to read a book from a different genre each month. This encourages children to read more and exposes them to different types of literature.

Another way to encourage reading is by engaging children in books without necessarily reading them. For instance, you could ask them to look at a book of animals and discuss what they see or listen to someone else read a story to them. This helps them develop an interest in books and storytelling.

Reading books about animals, nursery rhymes, space, or dinosaurs can also be a great way to spark children's curiosity and encourage them to read more. Lift-the-flap books can add an exciting element of surprise and interactivity to reading time.

In conclusion, there are many ways to encourage children to read and develop a love for books. By setting up book challenges, engaging children in books without reading, and providing them with a variety of interesting books, we can help foster a lifelong love of reading.
