Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
With the number of children reading for enjoyment at an all-time low, Melissa Perry Moraja, CEO of Melissa Productions and Award-Winning Children’s Author, wants all parents to know it is not too late to start making reading one of their children’s beloved pastimes. Reading is not only enjoyable, its academic benefits range wide as well. According to the U.S. Department of Education 2011 Reading Study, the more kids read for fun on their own time, the higher their reading scores.
“The greatest gift a parent can give their child is the love for reading,” shares award-winning children’s author, Melissa Perry Moraja. “As a child, I didn’t love to read. In fact, I found it to be a chore. But as I got older, I soon discovered that reading can be fun. What made it fun for me was sharing the stories I read with others and discovering their perspective on it.”
As a mom to four children, Melissa is familiar with different reading styles, abilities, and interests. She has one child that enjoys reading non-fiction and another that enjoys reading fantasy. She even has one like herself who has struggled finding books that keep his interest. Creatively, Melissa has found a way to make him excited to read.
The following are Melissa’s top tips for mothers trying to help their children enjoy reading:
