School starts out serious from such an early age now. Just the other day a friend was mentioning that many four-year-olds are already reading. We’re pushing our kids younger and younger and what does this lead to? Burn-out big time! Burn-out at an early age.

We need to show our children from day one that learning and reading is fun, not a chore.

One easy way to make reading fun is change up the environment where your child reads. I’m no fort expert. That would be my huband’s job.

“Come read in the fort, Daddy!”

A fort is an easy and inexpensive way to spice up reading for your little one.

In the picture above, Brandon is happily reading All Better, known to many families as the Band-Aid Book.

This is another fort Brandon and his daddy built together. I got to read in it with Brandon. Here we are reading one of the 1001 things to spot books. There are so many good ones, but we love the farm one the most.

The best books to use in a fort are the Shine-a-Light Books.

Keep books throughout the house: in the bedroom, in the bathroom, and in baskets throughout all other living areas.

I even started a nursing basket for books that Brandon can read when I’m nursing baby brother Justin. This helps me on the days that my toddler is really needing some extra love and attention.

Simple ways to make reading fun

Make sure you keep a wide variety of books. As your child gets tired of some, they’ll choose old ones they loved months before or brand-new ones.
