(HealthDay News) -- Reading is an important part of childhood. Parents can encourage a love of reading by getting little ones engaged in books.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these suggestions:

  • Ask young children to name which books they want to read, and have them pretend to read out loud to you.
  • Ask children to tell you how a story you are reading resembles something they have done or seen.
  • Engage children with questions about a book, and encourage them to ask questions back.
  • Toddlers should be able to point out when you've skipped a page or section.
  • Ask your toddlers to explain a book in their own words.
