Reading is a high level of enjoyment and it's also a moment of personal pleasure-to escape from the outside world. Less children are reading. No, let's face the facts, only four out of the twenty-nine people in my class two years ago knew how to appreciate the world of books. Today, those four, only two still read, and one's dying down, turning for facebook and that sort of thing.
But that's teenagers. What about children?
Try to get them addicted as soon as possible. That way there's more possibility to enjoy the pleasure of reading later in life. Maybe for 2-6 year olds, maybe just let them 'have' a book. Let them study the pictures...
At +6 years, maybe that's when you have to really promote books. Take them to the library every day, if you need to I mean.
I'm only thirteen, I'm not a parent. These are just my opinions.
That's what I think. If you think another way, I respect it.
