Many parents ask how they can help their children become better readers. The simple solution is that reading for as little as 30 minutes a night will help improve reading levels. Even advanced students will gain new vocabulary and reading strength in 30 minutes a night. If your child is reluctant to read a novel, why not get a nonfiction book on their favorite sport or team? Teen magazines are also great for reading!
