    what i've always done with my kids is read to them when they are babies. i believe that it gets them to want to read because they grow to love stories. all my kids like to read so i think it's effective.

    Start out when they are infants and continue to read the same few stories over and over. Reading the same stories will help your children not only remember the story but the words and they will pick up reading faster.

    I know how hard this is if you raise your kids in the great out doors.  There is no time to read.  But, kids learn from example.  They mirror you..  Read while you raise them.  Read while they play. read more

    Read to them, read to them, read to them.  It sounds simple but it really does help.  My daughter is 6 and she's still learning, but she has a few small books that she can now read to me.

    Read to them daily and I realize that is hard with both parents often having to work.  Then when they get a little older get an easy to read book and take turns reading out loud, act it out, make it fun and they will look forward to it nightly.

    Talk to them, interact with them more often. In this way , they can easily adapt to their environment and get interested into reading more.

    Kids now a days should primarily focus on learning new things ahead of time, especially the art of reading. The new approach on teaching kids to read, are now simplified, yet very effective and a powerful method. Colorful reading materials accompanied with funny sounds. It has strategically designed new methods of taking the kid's interest into those reading materials. A highly recommendable website could provide you with a much detailed information on how to make your child become smarter. http://thiskidcanread.com

    Good luck!
