5 Quick Tips for Reading

 From the *kkr blog, president and CEO of Reading is Fundamental, Carol H. Rasco, thanked all members of kappa kappa gamma for continued support of RIF and gave some reading tips. 

*Kappa Kappa Gamma’s national philanthropy is RIF, Reading is Fundamental, which serves under-served children and families through the development and delivery of literacy programs and campaigns that motivate youth to read regularly. The following are the top tips that Carol gave, which I love, for reading: 

5 Quick Tips for Reading

1) Read everyday for pleasure: Whether just one page from a book, a magazine, online report or an affirmation, you’ll experience so much joy from the welcomed escape of a pleasurable read

2) Let good books find you: If you aren’t sure where to start, ask for recommendations from friends. You can also check out a best sellers list to pick out a book.

3) Share a story: Carol says, “Read to a child in your life through a Kappa Kappa Gamma  “Reading Is Key” volunteer opportunity. You’ll feel empowered knowing you’re inspiring the next generation of lifelong readers.”

4) Go ahead! Start your own book club: Even if you miss some meetings, skip some chapters you’ll still enjoy meeting up and making new friends through sharing a good book together.**

5) Jot it down: Keep a list of books read and when. Also keep a list of books that you read to your children and that your children have read. When old enough, have your child start a reading journal. They will enjoy looking back to see the books that they have read. ***

**Book Club Ideas: I was in a mommy group for 1 year where we met weekly for a playgroup and book discussion. During that year we read books such as: The Power of a Praying Wife & The Power of a Praying Parent by Stormie Omartian, and we would bring articles from magazines or the internet that we had read on parenting to discuss.

***Jot it down: I have a journal where I keep a list of all books recommended by friends, who that friend is and why recommended. I’m also making my way through reading all the books off some lists that I have collected. Some of those lists include:

1) Top 100 novels, printed from the Dallas Morning News nearly 10 yrs ago

2) BBC top 100

I’m always taking recommendations so please feel free to recommend some books. I love good fun reads to calm my mind before falling asleep, inspirational reads, surprisingly good reads, educational reads, surprise me!

Reading is such a gift that you can give to your child by encouraging them to read.

Read daily to your child and it is NEVER too young to start reading!
