NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Would your child rather empty the dishwasher or fold laundry instead of breaking open a book?

CBS2’s Cindy Hsu spoke with parenting expert Chrissy Khachane, who offered up some tips on how to make reading fun for any age.

For starters, Chrissy suggests creating a “book nook” for your little ones. Promote reading habits by placing a few small bookshelves in the corner of a playroom and add a few floor pillows or beanbag chairs to create a magical world for your toddler or preschooler.

Make sure to crawl into the nook with your child and take some magical story adventures together!
