A reading culture is the cultivation of an attitude and the possession of skills that make reading a pleasurable, regular and constant activity. Reading, for some people is a chore, for others it is a means to an end- passing exams, but there are those people who think it is fun. These last category see it as fun because somehow, they have been able to develop a reading culture.

All of these will help with the process of developing a reading culture in children. Just note that the most essential bit though is that you PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH. Children are copy cats and would most likely imitate what they see you do.
