What if my child just wants to read all day?

Unschooling: Reading - All Day?

Most in-school reading is controlled by teachers who assign chapter-by-chapter segments of fiction or textbooks. When children are free to read, they become excited about a book and often want to read it straight through. Let them!

Rather than interrupt your child's reading to practice multiplication tables, for instance, wait until he or she is tired of reading or finishes the book. And, make sure that you have plenty of high-quality reading material available at home.
