The taste for reading is one of the characteristics that mothers and fathers most desire in daughters and sons. In a study conducted by researchers at the State University of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ), in addition to being in the top 5, he was mentioned as one of the most important family ties in the transition from childhood to youth – a family that reads together remains united.
To reach this goal, it is not enough to hope that the baby is born with something like a “reading gene” or to demand that the school make the children become great readers. It is at home that everything starts and has to be maintained.
According to the conclusions of two other studies carried out in 2015 (one at the University of Minho-Portugal and the other at the Federal University of Paraíba), the main factors that lead the children to become interested in reading are to see the adults in the house reading and having books within reach so they can read or simply browse when they feel like it.
