Reading to Two: A Double Challenge

While parents understand the importance of reading to children, it is often a struggle to read to two. How can parents negotiate the “book wars,” when one child only wants to read chapter books and the other insists on reading picture books? What can parents do when one child wants to read about dinosaurs and the other wants to read about ballerinas?

While reading to two can be a challenge, there are strategies that do work. The strategies that follow can help you make the family reading experience meaningful, while helping your children to develop their abilities as readers and writers.
