Decorate your house with books. Get new ones from the library and situate them all over the house. If they have good cover art of a hero, ask your child to tell you the hero's story! Let your child make some book covers of his/her own for the books you have finished reading, and display the new book covers around the house, as well.

Although Antarctic fiction is rarer, we have some found great examples, as well as non-fiction books for every reader in your family.
