Open a World of Wonder: Tips to Spark Your Preschooler’s Love of Reading

by @LittleTreehouseBangkok on January 5, 2024

At Little Treehouse Nursery, we believe that books are gateways to endless possibilities. Witnessing a child’s eyes light up as they lose themselves in a story is pure magic. That’s why we’re passionate about helping parents and teachers nurture a love for reading in every preschooler.

The Benefits of Early Literacy

Early reading isn’t just about sounding out words. It’s a foundation for strong literacy skills, boosting language development, cognitive growth, and imagination. Children who develop a love for books in their preschool years tend to perform better in academic settings, express themselves more creatively, and possess a deeper understanding of the world around them.

Spark the Reading Flame

So, how do we spark that love for reading in our little ones? Here are some simple yet effective tips:

Create a Cozy Reading Nook

Transform a corner of your home into a dedicated reading space, complete with comfy cushions, colorful blankets, and plenty of books within reach. Make it a special place where snuggling up with a good story becomes a treasured ritual.

Lead by Example

Let your child see you enjoying reading! Curl up with your own book before bedtime, talk about what you’re reading, and share your favorite childhood stories. Your enthusiasm will be contagious.

Choose Age-Appropriate Books

Don’t overwhelm your child with complex texts. Select books with vibrant illustrations, catchy rhymes, and engaging stories that cater to their interests and developmental stage. Visit Little Treehouse Nursery’s website for recommended literacy resources tailored to preschoolers.

Make Reading Interactive

Bring stories to life! Use silly voices for different characters, act out scenes with puppets, or encourage your child to predict what happens next. This not only enhances the fun factor but also strengthens their comprehension skills.

Turn Daily Life into Storytime

Point out words on signs, labels, and even menus. Sing familiar songs together, invent stories about your walks in the park, and let your child “read” to you with their favorite picture books. Every moment can be a reading opportunity.

Connect with the Community

Take advantage of local libraries, attend storytime sessions, and participate in children’s book festivals. Engaging with other readers of all ages can create a sense of belonging and spark further interest in books.


The most important thing is to make reading a positive and enjoyable experience. Focus on fun, discovery, and connection. With patience, encouragement, and these simple tips, you can help your little one unlock the wonders of the written word and embark on a lifelong love affair with reading.

Happy Reading!

At Little Treehouse Nursery, we are always here to support parents and teachers in their journey to foster a love for reading in their preschoolers. We encourage you to reach out to us for further guidance and recommendations.
