1. Let them read whatever they want. 

2. Use audiobooks (or audible).

3. Encourage books that are part of a series.

4.Encourage books from a high interest universe they know from other media (Spider-Man, Star Wars, Minecraft, LEGO, etc...).

5.Remember nonfiction.

6. Encourage reading comics & graphic novels.

7. If they're reading at inappropriate times (the dinner table, when they should be sleeping, etc...) don't make a huge deal out of it.

8. Make time for reading. 

9. Read to them.

10. Read yourself.
