If possible, purchase the book and let your child get the author's signature. Encourage older children to read to younger children siblings, cousins, neighbors, and even stuffed animals make great audience members. Let your child read aloud to you. Reading the same book multiple times is natural and beneficial for new readers.
You might also want to try reading a page to your child then ask your child to read the same page back to you. Keep it fun or make it into a game. Practice the names of letters and the sounds the letters make. What sound does that letter make? Young children often do not hear all the sounds that make up words. Placing pillows or cushions on the floor is an easy way to make your regular space into a reading space. Have reading materials throughout your home and easily accessible to your children.
Always bring a book to read on public transportation and when you anticipate having to wait in a line like at the doctor's office. Create a special place for your children to keep their books in the home a specific section of a bookshelf, a box in their room, etc. Talk about Books At dinner, or other informal times, ask your children about the book they are reading.
Use reading questions to have deeper conversations about books. Share your childhood memories about reading and books. Encourage relatives to give books as gifts. Suggest topics in which your child is interested. Ask a teacher or librarian for book suggestions —they usually know the new and popular reading material for children of different ages. If Needed, Provide Some Incentives for Reading Allow kids to stay up past their bedtime minutes to finish reading a book or chapter.

Krause June 21, — August 25, Margarita Krause, was years young, residing at Stuart Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Stuart, Florida, when the full moon guided her journey into the realm of Heaven on Saturday, August 25, She was a remarkable, extraordinary woman with a life worthy of a novel.
She was a competitive swimmer in school, a sun lover and was consistently being chased out of the sun by her shade-loving mother. At age 19, she met Albert Swasey at a ballroom dance in Havana while he was visiting Cuba for a Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute reunion. Here was her long awaited ticket to adventure, the world out there and escape from the confines of the island!
And so began her adventures with the handsome Navy Lieutenant from New York. Margarita was a passionate, vibrant, complex woman, a devoted, fierce mother and Commander of the household and kids. She was an accomplished seamstress and her many embroidery, crochet and crewel work creations were amazing works of art. At first, the young family moved throughout the United States pursuing Al's engineering career. I think we watched every episode of I Love Lucy during those years. In Madrid, Spain, she skied the mountains, traveled aboard a steamer to Portugal with friends, and danced the night away with the newfound overseas crowd.
She stitched napkins and tablecloths. She survived Vivian's pet lizards, threatening to flush them down the toilet when they escaped their shoe-box home. She encouraged George who excelled at baseball and was testing his wings as a young man. And she survived solo with her children on the USS Rotterdam across a stormy Atlantic Ocean from Holland to New York, with waves so rough they broke the porthole in the cabin, suitcases swimming on the flooded cabin floor.
She insisted on sports participation for all, even when the kids were not quite willing. Vivian took tap dancing lessons in New York, Flamingo dancing in Spain, and Dick and Vivian began horseback riding lessons while on tour in Bangkok. George and Dick both participated in baseball. George became a star pitcher in Spain and also did quite well in football. Yes, Margarita was always there. And like her mother before her, would travel to visit grown children no matter where they were living.
She was so proud of her children and her need to keep in touch; the glue that kept the family together. Tired at last of overseas travel, she returned to Massapequa, NY, divorced Al, and met a new man, Seymour Krause, one who was not an avid adventurer. Not long afterwards, Margarita and Cy moved to Miami, FL where she had always wanted to live and where she felt right at home in the Cuban population. But Cy's job transfers took him to Clearwater and then lastly to Jensen Beach. Margarita volunteered at the Elliott Museum after Cy passed, where for the next 10 years she was a permanent fixture in the Gift Shop.
Antique Car Shows at the Elliott would find Margarita dressed in vintage clothing, wandering amongst the visitors, strutting her stuff. I think perhaps those were her happiest years - free of children, husbands and cooking duties! Even in the Halls of Stuart Nursing during her 8 years in residence there, Margarita was known as a spiffy dresser with coiffed hair, lipstick on, Revlon Red nail polish and high heels clacking down the halls on her way to bingo. It literally took years to get her accustomed to wearing lower heeled shoes!
Free at last of the physical body that finally betrayed the adventurer, I know she is driving God nuts with high heels clacking and the need for ever more Adventure! She is survived by her three children George, Vivian and Richard, her granddaughter Anne, and two great grandsons Hunter and Thomas. I miss you, Mom. God speed.
