How to Teach Your Children to Read and Love It For A Lifetime- Dr Seuss

Updated on February 4, 2015

Teach Your Child To Read The Best Children's Story Book Of All Times

I read my child the best children's book I can remember as a child; fairy-tales mostly; one book was "The Cat And The Hat" . I actually had many books coming up especially comics, but that ones most exciting to me were the ones that forced me to read just to keep up with the never ending imaginary journey.

After saying all of that realized that your children do what you do more than what you say and if you have an appreciation for books and share book gems with your child,you will find that they will enjoy your company and find their own favorites eventually.

Reading books will elevate your child's comprehension throughout their life. Reading will also allow them to expand their imagination, creativity and vocabulary. There may be a time when you may think different, but believe me a child that starts out reading ends up reading; just look at us.

Teaching Your Child To Read and Enjoy Your Favorites

I remember "The Cat In The Hat" book and TV holiday specials. The whole family would enjoy "The Grinch That Stole Christmas" during the holidays; we also looked forward to it every year on TV.

The books were action packed from beginning to end and learning to read was as exciting as blowing the largest bubbles. You just tried and tried until you were successful. This is how reading is supposed to be, fun.

What impress me with Dr. Seuss books and why I highly recommend them is because of the life messages in all of his book. His books are thought provoking and full of deep messages you may not realize until later. Any age person can learn from reading a Dr. Seuss book.

His book gently teaches our children about bullying and friendship and dealing with hurt feelings. Getting your child to read while teaching them life lessons is only a book away.

Dr.(Theodore)Seuss Geisel - The Cat In The Hat

Dr.Seuss has contributed 60 books that taught lessons along them are these kids favorite books:

  • Green Eggs And Ham (Try new foods.)
  • The Lorax (Protect Environment)
  • Oh, the Places You’ll Go (New experiences/safety)
  • How The Grinch Stole Christmas (value of tradition)

Parents were spared uncomfortable conversations with your child of 4-8 years old. Only a true professional can get across life lessons on a child's level with no problem at all. Dr. Seuss is that professional.

The famous books by Dr. Seuss has inspired children to read by the exciting way his stories were told. He always spoke to children and not at them. If you haven't already, please get a book for your child today.

Many adults are fascinated when they find what they missed out on by not reading the whole collection. The Dr.Seuss business,collection and theory are teaching children as well as adults to read to this day!

Dr.Seuss Famous Quotes

Not to mention the inspiration he left as part of his legacy. If you have never read any of Dr. Seuss quotes you have to do a search and treat yourself. There like a Dr. Seuss page in his book just for pre-teens to older adults. One of my favorite Dr.Seuss quotes is...

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. ”

Wow , it seems he was also a romantic. I've seen people write books for what he said in one sentence. This is only one of Dr.Seuss famous quotes there are plenty more. But wait, here is one more I want to dedicate to the hard workers and student's out there .

“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!” Dr Seuss

What was your favorite children's story book that inspired you as a child and why? Sharing our favorite children's book with our children and grandchildren gives us something to share for years and generations to come.

Just imaging reading the same stories your grandmother read to you to your grandchild. Getting your favorite children's book personalized for your grandchild with your favorite prayer or words of wisdom can be your new tradition.

Teaching Your Child To Read For A Lifetime Starts Now

It is a sorry thing to see a child that doesn't like to read. They may not have experienced books as nothing more than a learning tool and never have experienced it as a tool that can stimulate creativity and transform them into anything they want and travel into any land or space.Reading is incredible. I only wish more can see why.

Maybe the child that doesn't want to read has never saw their parents enjoy a good book or experienced them reading them a bedtime story. Maybe they need glasses. Reading is such a wonderful way to spend your time when there is nothing else to do. It is so much better to have your brain active than be on auto pilot watching cable or videos all of the time.

Learning and building your vocabulary are great benefits to reading regularly. Teaching your child to read can open up new worlds to them and enable them to develop their minds by learning new things and exercising their brains.
