Run Your In-House Library Like a Pro

Although the thought of having your children immersed in piles of books is a parent’s dream, the reality is that too many books can be overwhelming. Being organized about selecting their books is an important part of keeping your children reading consistently. Know what books and authors excite your kids and then determine the best method to consistently give them those books. Utilize the public library often. Check out about five books per visit to ensure there’s enough time to finish the selections before returning them. Trading books with other families is another great idea.
