Reading Resources

Parents, guardians, grandparents interested in learning more ways to support young readers will benefit from watching the short clips below. Each video clip offers different strategies on how to support a child’s reading journey.

The most important factor in fostering a love of literacy is to make the reading experience enjoyable. Bedtime stories are an excellent way for parents to model expert reading without any stress. Visiting the library and used bookstores are great ways to allow children to explore and choose books they’re interested in.

Literacy in Kamloops has prepared six short video clips for their Come Read with Me program demonstrating ways you can support your child at home in learning to read.
