Reading to brothers and sisters

Encourage older children to read to their younger brothers and sisters. Older children often enjoy showing off their skills to admiring listeners.

Both the older and younger siblings will benefit from this sharing. The younger sibling has the benefit of being read to, and the older child has a real purpose to develop more fluency (sound better).

Younger children may also like a turn at reading to a supportive older sibling.
