Factors that influence children’s reading behaviours

Pringle House Eco School

According to American researchers, Kathryn Edmunds and Kathryn Bauserman, the following factors influence children’s reading behaviours.

  • Children are more likely to read a book they chose themselves.
  • Children enjoy books that match their personal interests.
  • Children are more likely to choose books that have exciting covers, great illustrations and action-packed plots, as well as books that are funny or scary.
  • What they could learn from reading a book was important to them.
  • Their interest in reading was sparked and encouraged by their family members (especially mothers), teachers and friends.
  • Children were often excited to read books they had heard about from friends.
  • Children enjoyed being read to by family members and teachers, even if they could already read.
  • Once they’d caught the reading bug, children continued to motivate themselves to read!
