child reading image for kids in the florida keys

Traveling with children can be a delight or a nightmare. Selecting a vacation spot that the whole family will enjoy is important, but proper planning for the trip will also ensure that everyone has a good time. In your preparations you may wish to set aside some time for quiet time and vacation reading activity.

Reading can be a vacation activity during rain or shine, for kids and adults. Reading can take place at the breakfast table in addition to quiet times. Encourage children to read from the restaurant menu. Reading from the back of cereal box can also be fun. Let each child pack their own small travel pack which special items and a favorite book. Bring a few brand new books for them to enjoy.

Vacations can be busy, but there is usually some free unstructured time for nurturing a child's reading skills. This is the time for relaxation fiction which shouldn't be an extension of school reading. A trip to an exotic location such as the Florida Keys will expose the child to new activities and experiences and whet the youngster's appetite for books about dolphins, snorkeling, nature, pirates, and seashells, birds and more. By selecting their own books children gain a sense of ownership.

Vacations are a time to read and to be read to. Most kids know about J.K Rowling and the Harry Potter books and perhaps they have heard about Shel Silverstein. Before he passed away Shel Silverstein lived in Key West. Youngster love to hear selections from Silverstein's book of wacky poems, Where the Sidewalk Ends. Start each day with a silly poem.

Children's books can be found throughout the Keys. Most attractions, museums, parks, and resorts in the Florida Keys have books which will appeal to children. Bookstores in the Florida Keys while generally small, have a ready supply of interesting books, new fiction, childrens' books, plus beach books and best sellers for adults.
