Tools for Reading Success for Your Kids

Chances are, your child has recently started school or is about to head back to school by next week. How is it going so far? Are they ready for success? What does a successful school year mean to you?

The folks at Follett want to help you and your children be as ready as they can be to feel empowered to meet their education goals for the year ahead. Check out their Top Tips for Parents list.

Tools for Reading Success for Your Kids

My daughter has Dyslexia so reading is a challenge for her. She is often hesitant to pick up a new book. The option to have eBooks through her school library in partnership with Follett has made such a difference. She loves that she can put a book on her tablet and highlight words as she goes along. Some books even have a read-to-me function.

My son is also a bit of a reluctant reader. Like most boys his age, he is an avid lover of technology. He also loves the Follett eBooks. With more than 300,000 eBook titles to choose from, Follett has all the key subject areas covered – Early Learning, Easy Readers, Graphic Novels, Professional, Science, Easy Fiction and Math and more!

Follett eBooks have several advantages over traditional printed books, providing benefits for students of all ages.

  • Call attention to key concepts with the highlighting tool; students can mark important information to come back to later
  • Look up unfamiliar terms and concepts using the built-in keyword search and dictionary in the online reader
  • Teachers can incorporate eBooks into classroom lessons with connections to electronic white boards too

Follett has been a trusted partner to Pre-K and K-12 schools, districts, and college campuses for more than 140 years, taking care of the critical details that make it easier for schools to run, teachers to teach and students to learn.

My Tip: Be a Reading Role Model

  • Make sure kids see you reading on a regular basis. It does not matter what you read; magazines, books, newspapers, etc. When your child sees you reading, it helps to reinforce the importance of reading in everyday life.

I have never heard of Follett eBooks but they sound amazing for the kids. This is something I will have to share with my sister and niece for their kids. Thanks so much for sharing.

I try to encourage reading by having my daughter read two books a night with me and also have her read various signs when we are out.

Ah yes, 'tis the season. :) My son is a 2nd grader reading at 5th grade level. I'm lucky he loves to read.
