Build a little getaway place for them to read. Suggest the bathtub with a pillow, throw a sheet over the picnic table and let them read under it like a tent, rainy day - under the dining room table with sheets over it. in mom and dad's bed. in dad's special chair when he's at work. take your own book, theirs, pack a pb&j sandwiches and have a picnic at the park or playground. let them see mom and dad enjoying books and also find books about nature and let them rediscover their own back yard of bug, birds, flowers, snakes etc, and everyone can share with interesting facts and finds.
